Burritos or Nachos. Pretty similar at our house. The main difference is the vehicle - tortilla chips or a tortilla ? Since we usually have both on hand we came up with this pretty close to perfect all-in-one filling for either use. It's simple and quick and really tasty. It also freezes well so make a big batch and freeze some for later. Opt to add any or all of the toppings .. no rules here other than enjoy :)

    Add the 3 Tbsp each of all the cheeses and cook over medium low until the cheese has melted and the contents are hot. Ladle the meat mixture into bowls and sprinkle with corn chip crumbles.
