Hmmm, I could try that. My husband would LOVE it.

Great idea!

Nachos!!! Put a layer of tortilla chips on the bottom of a 9x13, add the meat, beans or refried beans, cheese and heat up in the oven. Add tomatoes and whatever else you want on top. Or, taco salads. You could also use the meat in a southwest style lasagna.
