Mexican Tortilla Skillet

This meal, along with many of the other meals that use hamburger, comes together really quickly if you brown your hamburger when you bring it home from the store. I usually buy several pounds and divide it up into 1lb sections, then brown it and freeze it for later.

This is super simple and comes together really quickly.
