Pillsbury.com offers so many quick and easy to prepare recipes. We tried the Grilled Tex-Mex Nacho Packets this weekend and they were delicious! I made my own meat-mix instead of using the pre-made seasoned ground beef. We added some fresh jalapenos, and grilled onions to ours which is what makes this recipe so great; add your family favorites!
Make it healthier by making your own meat mix- use turkey or lean hamburger, and add low sodium taco sauce or season the meat yourself with cumin and chili powder. Reduced fat cheese and tortilla chips will also make this healthier.
INGREDIENTS1 1/2 cups refrigerated taco sauce with seasoned ground beef (from 18 oz. container) (can be found in the meat department of most local grocery stores)
8 Cups bite-sized Corn Tortilla Chips
1 can (15 0z.) black beans, drained, rinsed
1 cup chopped Italian plum tomatoes
3/4 cup diced peeled pitted avocado
1 can (11 oz) Green Giant® Mexicorn® whole kernel corn, red and green peppers, drained
1 cup shredded hot pepper Monterey Jack cheese (4 oz)
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
DIRECTIONSTo bake packets, place on large cookie sheet; bake at 375°F. for 15 to 20 minutes.
1. Heat grill. Cut four 18x12-inch sheets of heavy-duty foil; spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. Spread tortilla chips in center of each foil sheet.
2. Spoon ground beef in taco sauce evenly over chips. Sprinkle all remaining ingredients evenly over beef mixture. Wrap each packet securely using double-fold seals, allowing room for heat expansion.
3. When ready to grill, place packets on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 10 to 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and toppings are thoroughly heated.
4. To serve, carefully open each packet to allow steam to escape.
