I ate a dish similar to this in a resteraunt. I could never find a recipe, so I made up my own. This recipe is almost exact to the one I had in the resteraunt. You can spice it up with peppers, guacomole, or anything else. Any meltable cheese can be used for the sauce. Let me know what you think.

I used up my leftover taco meat and beans from last night with this and added several jalapenos, these were so good. The cheese sauce was also very tasty, next time I might make it up with shredded cheddar instead of velveeta.

I had some beef in the freezer leftover from when I made beef broth. I used that and added some extra seasoning (chili powder, cumin and some cayenne). We really liked this. I also had some enchilada sauce in my freezer that I heated up to serve on top also. We really loved these, so simple. My kids did a half and half.....half covered with cheese sauce and half with the enchilada sauce. I served these with spanish rice, guacamole, sour cream, lettuce, black olives, onions, tomatoes and salsa. This was a great Cinco de Mayo meal. Thank you so much for sharing with us.

Pretty good. I added some chilies to the meat/tomato mix to spice it up, and some cayenne pepper in the cheese sauce.
