Let's Make It
Crumble meat into microwaveable colander; place over microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 8 min., stirring every 2 min. to break up the meat. Discard fat. Transfer meat to 9-inch microwaveable pie plate; stir in seasoning mix and water. Microwave 5 min., stirring after 3 min.
Remove half the meat mixture; cover remaining meat mixture with half the tortillas. Repeat layers of meat mixture and tortillas; top with salsa and cheese. Microwave 4 min.
Top with remaining ingredients. Cut into wedges to serve.
Small Changes Add Up
Small ingredient substitutions, such as extra-lean ground beef, KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Cheddar Cheese, and BREAKSTONE'S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN Light Sour Cream, result in a savings of 70 calories and 8g of fat when compared to a traditional recipe.
Cook meat and assemble pie ahead of time for the kids to microwave when they get home. You can also pre-cut the lettuce and green onions for the topping.
