Is there really anything better than scooping a heaping amount of perfectly seasoned melted cheese chock full of beans and beef on a crispy tortilla chip? I’m not sure there is . . . You can customize this dip in a million different ways, you can spice it up with jalapeno or chipotle. Add diced bell peppers or a bag of frozen corn . . . it’s really limitless. Whatever you do – just make it and serve it to people, they will LOVE you forever for it.
