Mom was inspired to find this recipe when we got a deal on Taco Boats. Yes, small tacos in a boat shape intended for appetizers. This recipe uses Tostitos Scoops. Totally yummy. This recipe is from the cookbook from Sam's Club called Fresh, Fast and Fabulous c. 2010.
We had Velveeta to use up (from a family member) plus a package of Old El Paso™ Taco Boats™ mini soft flour tortillas that Mom bought from a grocery discounter. This was absolutely yummy and I would have it again and again in the future. Can you use other cheeses? Yes. You just have to figure out how to get it to melt well. Cheese soup probably would not be a good substitute. Mom just used a random chili seasoning mix.
1 lb. ground beef
1 1/3 cups prepared salsa
1 packet French's Chili-O Seasoning Mix
1/2 lb. Velveeta cheese
1 small can black olives, chopped
1 bag Tostitos Scoops
Cut Velveeta into cubes and set aside. Chop olives into small pieces and set aside. Brown ground beef in large skillet, drain fat and return skillet to stove top. Add salsa and chili seasoning to ground beef and mix well. Add Velveeta cubes to ground beef mixture and stir until cheese melts. Place a tablespoon of ground beef mixture into each Tostitos Scoop. garnish with chopped black olives. Repeat with remaining chips. Serve immediately.
