  1. As you might imagine, this sort of dish is pretty much a staple out here in Arizona. A quick lunch or a light supper is almost always at hand. But those little scoops are quite nice – even on their own. Not sure how they are different, but they are noticeably tastier.

    • You can use regular tortilla chips. The ground beef isn’t runny and should stay put if you don’t overfill them. You could even prepare them like nacho chips on a plate and spoon the ground beef mixture over the chips with a scoop of sour cream in the middle.
