Pour beans over corn chips in dish.
Add beef to top of beans.
Sprinkle remaining cheese over top.

It does sound so yummy!
Unfortunately I can't eat things like that for a whole month and maybe longer...(with all the stomach issues I have going on now- gastritis, acid reflux, heart burn, ulcer.) I'm on a very bland diet.
