What do you think? Crush the tortilla chips, lay on bottom of baking pan, add meat mixture, then cheese, crushed chips ,meat, chesse etc. I use colby and monteray jack cheese or yo can use the mexican mix cheese.

I would assume you first put in the second half of the meat mixture before you add the other half of the chips & cheese. :-)
