Charles Gibson's Enchilada Casserole

I first made this enchilada casserole 
about 5 years ago for a Super Bowl Party!

I decided to make it again for the Super Bowl yesterday!
I used Spicy Nacho flavored Doritos
I do not like beans
I used chili without beans.

Smashburger just opened
in Downtown Dallas
about a month ago

Today was my first visit!

My friend, DUB YA (W) got the Lone Star Burger
(chili, onions, tomatoes, jalapenos, grated cheddar on a chipotle bun)

I got the Mushroom Swiss Burger
(mushrooms, swiss cheese on an egg bun)

We each got an order of the smashfries
which are tossed in rosemary, olive oil & garlic

We could have easily shared an order

The burgers were juicy and flavorful!
I will definitely go back!

The only drawback is that it's next door to
Even though we were stuffed, we still had to go in for a cupcake
Thank goodness for mini-cupcakes!
This is the
raspberry cupcake
with champagne frosting

Cinnamon + Sugar Brioche Toast
