Beef Taco Bake

As I was reading my weekly magazines (People, US weekly), I kept seeing ads with yummy looking food.  The ad was for the Campbell's website.  What a great site with some good looking recipes.  
I found a taco bake that looked easy for a quick dinner for when we have evening practice.  I made it tonight and it received RAVE reviews from the family (we even had an extra nine year old that loved it)!  

Beef Taco Bake 
1 pound ground meat
1 can condensed tomato soup
1 cup Picante sauce  (I used Rotel mild diced tomatoes and green chilies)
1/2 cup milk
6 flour tortillas (8-inch), cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (I used a Mexican mix of cheese, and prob. a bit more)

1.  Cook the beef over medium-high heat until well browned.  Pour off any fat.
2.  Stir the soup, picante sauce, milk, tortillas and half of the cheese in the skillet.  
3.  Spoon mixture into a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Cover.
4.  Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until the beef mixture is hot and bubbling. 
5.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake uncovered for 5 minutes or until melted.  

We added a little dollop of  sour cream and I served with tortilla chips for a crunch.  This recipe is a keeper!
