Submitted by Judy Davis


  • 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 2 8 oz. pkgs. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 4 oz. can chopped green chilies, drained
  • 2 medium tomatoes seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped lettuce
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup honey barbecue sauce
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Corn chips


  • In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add water and taco seasonings; simmer for 5 minutes. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese and milk; spread on a 14-inch serving platter or pizza pan. Top with meat mixture. Sprinkle with chilies, tomatoes, onions, lettuce. Drizzle barbecue sauce. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Serve with corn chips. Note: This recipe works best on a rimmed cookie sheet rather than a pizza pan to help keep ingredients in place.
