I have been making this for years and it has become a family favorite. Just the other day, my ex-husband called to ask for the recipe.

This was very good. I was a little hesitant on putting 4 cups of sour cream on top so I settled for 2. I also only used 1 bag of chips...1/2 on the bottom and 1/2 on top. It turned out great!

I spiced this up a bit with fajita seasoning and added a can of fiesta nacho cheese soup. Very simple to make. We liked this a lot. Next time will double the meat.

This had a really good taste, but turned out a bit dry. I really thought that we might like it better made as nachos.
