Quick Chiliqueles

This is a really quick dish that is amazingly tasty. While we just mounded it up on a plate, it might be easier to serve it family style from a casserole dish. This would be a great recipe to use up the last of a big bag of tortilla chips.

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 pkg taco seasoning
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup chunky salsa
1/2 taco sauce
1 bag tortilla chips
1 cup shredded cheese

Brown the ground beef, drain. Return the beef to the pan, add the spinach, cook over medium-high heat 1 minute. Add the taco seasoning and water, cook 3 minutes (or just follow the directions on your particular brand).

Remove the taco mixture to another plate. In the warm pan, add the salsa and taco sauce. Cook 5 minutes, adding a large handful of chips each minute. The chips will have varying levels of texture and crispiness.

Spread a layer of chips, top with cheese and ground beef mixture. Repeat.
