"I've been making a dish like this for years, we call it "dinner nachos" because it's got meat, veggies and lots of cheese. The nice thing about it is that you can vary the ingredients to whatever is on hand or you're in the mood for. I use extra lean ground beef so I don't have to drain it. I've always thought it was silly to add onions, garlic and spices to ground beef and then drain away those flavors when the meat was done cooking."

"Added fresh roasted green chilies to the meat mixture as it simmered and fresh jap on top of the pile. I think salsa and maybe a dollop of sour cream on top would be good."

"Made this last night with a couple of substitutes. Instead of the tomato paste & puree, I just added a container of my favorite deli salsa to the meat. Definitely a hit at our house. Will be making it again!"

"Question: How do you eat this? Do you spoon it on to plates with more corn chips? Do you use tortilla chips and scoop it up right from the platter?"
