A fast, easy recipe. The smoothness of the meat mixture and crunchiness of the chips is a perfect combination. Increase or decrease chili powder to your liking.

  2. Mix browned meat, salsa, corn, Miracle Whip and chili powder.
  3. Layer half of this mixture in a 2-quart casserole dish, then half of the chips, and half of the cheese.

Fantastic and so easy. My family loves Tex-Mex food and this was devoured. I used medium heat salsa. The miracle whip gave it a creaminess with tang.I used the full 2 T chile powder and it gave it just the right amount of heat. This will become a regular in our home.

This was delicious. I used very lean beef, WOW tortilla chips, fat free mayo and fat free cheddar cheese to save on calories and fat. I will make this again!

This is another easy recipe for hectic weeknights. I always use frozen corn (that I have partial thawed) rather than the canned. Hubby and I love Tex-Mex. This is quick and satisfying.
