Tuesday, March 16, 2010


Round up the family for a pie full of flavor that’s ready in 30 minutes! This skillet version features Cheddar-bacon mashed potatoes surrounded with corn chips on top a zesty beef mixture. This recipe comes from Betty Crocker's Dinner Made Easy site.

What you'll need:
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 8 medium green onions, sliced (1/2 cup)
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 can (11 ounces) Green Giant® Mexicorn® whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, drained
  • 1 can (4 ounces) Old El Paso® chopped green chiles, undrained
  • 1/2 package (7-ounce size) Betty Crocker® Cheddar and bacon mashed potatoes (1 pouch)
  • 1 1/2 cups hot water
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (2 ounces)
  • 1 cup corn chips
Cook ground beef and 1/4 cup of the onions in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain well. Stir in barbecue sauce, 3/4 cup of the corn and the chilies. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low to keep warm.

Meanwhile, cook potatoes as directed on package for 4 servings, using 1 pouch Potatoes and Seasoning, hot water, milk and butter. Stir in remaining onions and corn; let stand 5 minutes.

Spoon potatoes onto center of beef mixture, leaving 2 1/2- to 3-inch rim around edge of skillet; sprinkle cheese over potatoes and beef mixture. Cover and let stand about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle corn chips around edge of skillet. Feeds 6.
