I found this recipe on Allrecipes. This skillet dinner will definitely keep you warm on a cold Fall or Winter day.

***The only changes I made was that instead of 1/2 tsp. of salt, I used ground cumin; and I didn't actually measure out the corn chips and cheese; I used about 3 handfuls of crushed corn chips, and about 1 heaping handful of cheese.

I also used extra tomatoes. But other than those minor things, everything's the same.

PS: Can you tell I'm into Southwestern food?
