Delicious (assuming you managed to cook the stew meat until tender). Didn't do a salad, just put the toppings on after baking. We ate this two nights in a row!

So tasty. I went super lazy and used spicy pico from the store. Next time I would shred the beef.

I didn’t make the chili so I used a can of Trader Joe’s vegetarian chili instead. Yum.

Very tasty. We ended up just eating the Chili in a bowl and scooping it up with nachos. So good.
