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.
