This recipe started as a 4 star with me, because I wasn't sure I liked it with the BBQ sauce. But then....I feed it to my three sons, (5,3,& 2) and I have rarely seen them eat so much or say how much they love, love, love dinner. So, I had to change it to a 5 star after that success! It is hard to say what different people will think about this recipe, because BBQ sauces vary so much in taste. We used a honey BBQ which would give an extremely different taste than a spicy sauce. I think this would also taste good with everything but the BBQ sauce if you are unsure about it.

This was ok...hubby liked it, but I didn't really like the BBQ sauce taste with this...didn't seem to fit for me. Thanks for the post anyway.

Guess I have to rate this 5 stars since my family ate every bite before I got one!!! I did make some minor adjustments. Used 1/2 ground beef, 1/2 ground sausage. Added 1 teaspoon of taco seasoning mix and did not mix my cheddar cheese into the meat to melt. I only used a handful of corn (kids not fond of) and used fresh chopped tomatoes instead of canned cause that is what I had on hand. I put my chips in a 350 for 5-7 minutes to heat "before" placing meat mixture on them. Will definitely make again so I get to try them!

I have been using this recipe for a while now and it is always great. The key is to pick a BBQ sauce that is really good. That will make or break this recipe. I use the Aldi brand BBQ sauce and it has just the right amount of sweetness to it that is wonderful with the saltiness of the chips. This has become a standard in our home.

Wow, I can't believe these got 5 stars from the family! They are really good. I added about 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning to the browned meat with a couple tablespoons of water and simmered less than 5 mins. I think I only used about half a bottle of bbq sauce. We will be having these again.

The kids LOVED it! I used lean beef so didn't have to drain it. Used taco seasoning from another recipe, just cut up the tomatoes instead of canned, added some onions, and used only a tablespoon of BBQ sauce, but still delicious. Poured the mixture over the chips and then sprinkled cheese on top and baked until cheese melted. Any chips good with this, used plain corn chips and delicious.
