"Cream Tacos" but really...FRITO PIE!

I remember the very first time I had this dish. It was at the Wright home in Arkansas. It is so delicious and my family fell in love with it! I asked my mom to make it for my birthday many years following that first night we had it! It's a crowd pleaser for sure! I'm not sure why it's called "Cream Tacos..." as it's more like Frito Pie...but whatever you call it...IT'S GOOD! Go make it today!
1lb ground beef (I use extra lean)-cooked and drained
2 cans chili hot beans
1 can rotel
1 can chili
1 lb velvetta-cubed
1 cup whipping cream
Throw all ingrediants into crock-pot. Cook for 4 hours (or less if you wanted). I usually stir now and then.
When it's dinner time...take a big bowl. Throw some fritos in there. Scoup up some of the delicious cheese mixture and put on top of fritos. Then top it off with whatever your heart desires!
Lettuce, tomato, avacado, olives, sour cream, etc.

Bacon Potato Cowder

This is a DELICIOUS soup that my entire family LOVES! It makes great left-overs AND I've frozen it before and it's just as good warmed up!
