  1. Cook the ground beef and onions over medium heat, breaking it into crumbles, until onions are caramelized, about 5-6 minutes.

  2. Add tomato sauce, enchilada sauce, and beans. Cook until sauce reduces slightly and mixture is "sloppy" (this should take another 5-6 minutes). 

  3. Top brioche bun with beef mixture, then cheddar cheese and Frito chips. Add green onions if desired.
