Corn Chip Chili Pie

The original recipe can be found in the Southern Living Ultimate Quick and Easy Cookbook.  The recipe found there involves doing everything in the microwave.  Here's how I make it:

Corn Chip Chili Pie
Serves 4 adults

1 pound lean ground beef or turkey
1/2 onion, chopped
1 (16-ounce) can kidney beans, drained
1 (11-ounce) can sweet whole kernel corn, drained
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (2 1/4-ounce) can sliced ripe olives (I use the chopped ones so they are more hidden.)
1 (1.25-ounce) chili seasoning
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (can use sharp Cheddar or a Mexican blend)
1 cup coarsely crushed corn chips (or just use them whole)

Brown the meat along with the onion; drain.  Combine with the beans, corn, tomato sauce, olives, and chili seasoning in a large bowl.  Pour into a 9x13 pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for around 20 minutes or until heated through.  Sprinkle corn chips and cheese over the top, and return to oven until cheese is melted.
Note: this was made with reduced fat cheese.  I don't recommend doing that.
