Beef Skillet Dip

And now something you could actually eat for dinner (aside from all the chocolate desserts I've been making lately).  I think this was originally supposed to be a casserole of sorts, but I made it into a dip.  It made a pretty filling dinner and was ridiculously easy.  Instead of just dipping tortilla chips like we did, you could also spoon it into hard or soft taco shells.  I'd also recommend it as an appetizer for a party or football Sunday.  So I shall probably make it again when the Steelers make it to the Superbowl!

Beef Skillet Dip
1 pound ground hamburger
1/2 of an onion, chopped
2 Tb taco seasoning OR chili seasoning OR fajita seasoning (whatever you have)
1 can condensed tomato soup
3/4 cup salsa
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream
tortilla chips for dipping

Brown the ground hamburger in a skillet.  Drain off the fat, if necessary, and add the onion and garlic. Cook for another two minutes or so.  Stir in the seasoning, tomato soup, salsa, and water.  Bring to a boil and lower the heat.  Cook for a few minutes until the sauce thickens a bit.  Sprinkle the cheddar on top and let it melt.  Top each portion with sour cream, if desired.  We just put the skillet on a potholder and ate it out of the pan.
