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.


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.
