Here is a recipe that I make for many special events.
I highly recommend you try it sometime, your guests will rave about this one........
Feel free to substitute regular corn chips with any of the flavored ones- I use Hot Stuff sometimes...hehe
Mine is topped with Sour Cream, then shredded cheese and jalapenos.

(These "pies" are popular throughout the American Southwest because they contain typical border flavors. The addition of Wisconsin cheese makes a good thing much better.)

4-1/2 cups traditional size corn chips, such a Fritos
3-1/2 cups shredded Wisconsin Colby or Cheddar (or use these in a mixture with Monterey Jack)
3/4 cups thinly sliced green onions (scallions)
4-1/2 cups chili con carne with beans, homemade or canned
3/4 cups sliced pickled jalapeno peppers, mild or hot-or a mixture
red salsa to taste

Choose six microwave dishes, about 5 inches in diameter and 2-1/2 inches deep--such as cereal bowls or large custard cups. In each cup, layer as follows, spreading each ingredient evenly in the bowls:

1/2 cup corn chips
1/3 cup shredded Wisconsin cheese
2 tablespoons sliced green onion
3/4 cup chili
1/4 cup corn chips
2 tablespoons sliced jalapeno chiles
1/4 cup shredded Wisconsin cheese

Microwave each pie on full power, high, for about 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until the chili is heated through and the cheese melts. Top each serving with a spoonful or two of your favorite salsa. Eat with a spoon.

If you wish to use a conventional oven, bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

You may add additional toppings--such as sour cream, cilantro and shredded lettuce along with the salsa.

Serves 6.
