Cheap and Easy Dinner

Here's a budget dinner recipe for you. This is a go-to for us when we're in desperate need of a grocery run.
Cheesy Taco Skillet

1 lb ground beef
1 small onion
garlic to taste
1 can tomato soup
1/2 can water
1 can salsa
2-3 8-inch flour or corn tortillas
handful of shredded cheese

Brown the beef and onion (chopped) in a medium-sized skillet. Add garlic to taste. When the beef is browned, drain the fat. Add one can of tomato soup, then use the can to measure a half can of water (add to the pot) and one can of your favorite salsa (add to the pot). Stir to combine, and simmer until warmed through. Tear tortillas into 1-2 inch pieces, and add to the pot, and stir. Simmer 10-15 minutes or until sauce has thickened. Serve in a bowl with a sprinkling of shredded cheese on top.
