Recipe by your mom
"This is a super speedy dinner I like to make when it is getting late and I haven't cooked yet. Chili, corn chips and cheese are topped with lettuce and tomato. Spice it up with your favorite salsa. Vegetarian chili can be found with the regular chili - it is often labeled as 'fat free'. This recipe can easily be doubled, and cooked in a 9x13 inch baking dish."

This is so quick and yummy and makes an excellent speedy supper. We used Frito's corn chips and nuked individual servings in the microwave. Don't forget the chopped red onions! Thanks Emily.
The chips got soggy. Wasn't that good.
My family loves this one...we use Amy's Black Bean Chili and blue tortilla chips! So yummy and quick...great for when you have little time to make supper.
It tastes very good and is SO easy and fast to make! I added olives and white onions to the toppings...will definitely make this dish again!!!
Way too much salt with the chips and chili, but comfort food nonetheless. I always made this in individual bowls on Halloween for the kids before trick or treating. Heating up the chili and pouring it over crunchy chips, topped with cheese and other things. We prefer our chips to be not so soggy when it is baked. Watch the salt though - between the chips, chili, and cheese there's alot!
I mix in shredded skinned chicken in big chunks (cooked via Safeway or Cosco) and put a sprig of parsley on top and it is always "A hit" for a group at Potlucks.
This was gooood! I couldnt find any vegetarian chili so I bought the store brand. The meat was listed near the end of the ingredients. There didnt seem to be a lot of meat present. I used the Tostitos brand bite size tortilla chips. The cooking softens the tortilla chips. I put the shredded lettuce, tomatoes, salsa and sour cream on the table and let every put on what they wanted. The sour cream made it very rich and filling. It could be eliminated, although it was good. Excellent and liked by all.
I thought this dish was pretty good. It's definitely easy to make and great for a quick supper. I used Tostito's corn chips instead of Frito's. I thought 6 cups of chips seemed like a lot, so I used about 4 cups, crushed. I was able to find the fat-free (also low sodium/no salt added) chili in the health food aisle at my grocery store. Next time, I will also serve this dish with with black olives and guacamole. This dish is a lot like supreme nachos. It would be great for a party -- just spread your chips out on a sheet pan instead of in a 9x9 square, serve lettuce, tomato, and sour cream on the side, and call it nachos supreme! Thanks for sharing Emily!
