Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 8


  • 1 package Corn tortillas 25 oz
  • 1 lb breakfast sausage
  • 2 lbs bacon
  • 1/2 lb diced ham
  • 1 bag tater rounds 30 oz
  • 24 oz Arbo's Cheese Dip
  • 2/3 cup flour for roux
  • 4 cups milk to make gravy
  • Potato Slayer seasoning
  • Salt/Pepper


  • Heat oil to cook tortillas to 350-360 degrees.
  • Cut up tortillas into 4-6 pieces per tortilla.
  • Place on a baking sheet in oven at 350 for about 7-8 min to help remove moisture. Making the tortilla chips is the lengthiest part of the recipe, you need to work in small batches.
  • Fry chips in small batches until they are a light golden brown then immediately remove and season.
  • Get bacon diced up and cooking on med heat. It will take a little while with 2lbs.
  • In a separate pan on med heat add ham just long enough to get a little color then remove. It will dry out if you leave it too long. Then cook breakfast sausage through and set aside.
  • Add tater rounds to oven or air fryer and cook per instructions.
  • Once bacon is cooked through remove 2/3 of it as well as about half the bacon grease. Add flour and create a roux letting it cook on low med heat a few min to cook the flour off.
  • Season then Slowly add milk while stirring until desired consistency.
  • To construct I like to use a deep dutch oven or pan. Start with some gravy in the bottom then add all the toppings and cheese sauce before a layer of chips. Repeat this 2 more times.
  • Place a large covered cutting board over the dutch oven and carefully flip. When lifted you should have an even coating of ingredients on your tortilla chips. Enjoy!!



Making the tortilla chips takes the most time for this recipe but it’s WELL worth it,  trust me!  Season with what you like and if you want to save time,  use store bought tortilla chips.  Know if you make your own tortilla chips you will also add 30-45 min to prep/cook time.  You can go many ways with this.  Use chorizo, add some scrambled eggs which we many times do,  Green chilis or some onions.  You can also use shredded cheese instead of cheese dip but I love the Arbo's on these.  If it isn't available near you then quest works great!  Give these a shot and let me know what you think!

“Trashed” Wings

“Trashed” Wings

"Trashed Wings" originated in St. Louis, MO and I had them for the first time last summer. Made them at home less than a week after that and now they are a semi regular menu item around our house. They are easy to make, here is how you do it! Note: They are called "trashed" wings bc your oil will be trashed after making them due to cooking the already dipped in buffalo sauce.
