Southwestern Meat Filling (or on own)

Theresa K


I pulled this together tonight. On the bottom were crushed tortilla chips and then crushed on top... while eating it the family came up with other great ideas with this mix... such as in taco salads, in egg roll wrappers, as a chimichunga filling... use with pie crust to make a stomboni, may be even use those pop dough crescent rolls. Empanadas came to mind first. I hope to hear what others have come up with.
