Beef Tamale Skillet

Here is another recipe I found from the Cookbook Junkie Blog. I was looking for a quick, easy Mexican type dish and thought this one fit the bill. It was super easy to make and from prep to done in 30 min was great for a quick dinner before evening events. I think the next time around I will play with the seasoning a bit more, and maybe try a specialty salsa.

Add salsa, Mexicorn, tortilla strips, and water; toss to mix. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook 10-15 minutes.
