Bring to boil.

Reduce heat.

Simmer, covered for 20 minutes stirring occasionally.

Top with cheese.

Recover and heat for 3 minutes or until cheese melts.

Beef, TexMex - Convenient 1 pan meal. This is not a spicy hot meal, but you can add diced jalapeños if you prefer it that way. I have also made this for large groups of people by making it up to the cheese and chips and transferring the meat into a large casserole before topping it with the cheese and crushed chips and placing it in the oven until the cheese melts. I like it best with a side of buttered corn.
