I haven't made this yet. I was wondering how you eat this? Wouldn't tostado chips be better for scooping versus corn chips. Just wondering. I'm making for Cinco de Mayo.

We make something very similar for a meal. We call it Mexican Fiesta also but we put the 'chili' and rice in our individual bowls and add what ever fixings we want to our bowls. My whole family loves it. And there are 10 of us! :)
