Stacker Symphony: Beyond the Bun

Before we dive into the recipe, let’s appreciate Stacker’s genius. It wasn’t just about the ingredients (though that gooey cheese trio deserves a standing ovation). It was about the texture tango: the crispy-yet-soft tortilla cot a molten cheese river, punctuated by savory beef chunks. It was handheld, affordable, pure and delicious.

But why settle for imitation when you can be your own Stacker maestro? This recipe is your launchpad to explore diverse flavors within the Stacker framework. Swap the beef for seasoned chicken, shredded barbacoa, or even veggie crumbles for a meatless twist. Ditch the nacho cheese sauce for a fiery salsa Verde or a creamy chipotle mayo. Add chopped onions, peppers, or even black beans for an extra textural kick. The possibilities are endless, limited only by your imagination and spice rack!

Stacker Resurrection: A DIY Guide

Time to get cooking’! Gather these ingredients:

For the Seasoned Filling:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground beef (or your protein of choice)
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

For the Stacker Masterpiece:

  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 1 ½ cups nacho cheese sauce (or your chosen sauce)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese blend)
  • Optional toppings: diced tomatoes, sliced jalapeños, sour cream, avocado


  • Seasoned Filling Symphony: Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté the onion until softened, then add the garlic and cook for another minute. Brown your chosen protein, breaking it up with a spoon. Drain excess fat, then stir in chili powder, paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper. Cook for another minute, letting the flavors meld.
  • Stacker Assembly: Spread your chosen sauce generously on each tortilla. Top with the seasoned filling, then pile on the cheese. Fold the tortillas in half like quesadillas.
  • Golden Glow: Heat a lightly oiled griddle or pan over medium heat. Carefully place your Stacker babies on the griddle and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, until golden brown and the cheese is a melty masterpiece.
  • Stacker Fiesta: Slice your Stackers in half diagonally and savor them hot with your chosen toppings. Unleash your inner culinary artist – go crazy with diced tomatoes, fiery jalapeños, cool sour cream, or creamy avocado!
