There's no need to brown ground beef when fixing this satisfying snack. Laura Jirasek of White Lake, Michigan tops crunchy chips with warm canned chili and melted cheese, then sprinkles it all with chopped tomato and onion for fresh flavor and color.

"I needed something quick for a cookout we were having. I saw this recipe just before our guests arrived. I did not use the chili, as the kids were little that I was making it for. It was SO easy...THEY LOVED IT...and I'll make sure I make it again soon."
