People who mishandle my chips in any way leading to their being unnecessarily broken. The fact that I still have another part-full bag of broken chips because they are too small to eat but I don't want to just throw them out and waste food. What are you supposed to do with a bunch of broken chips? I was thinking of crushing them up and using them to bread something, or make a casserole or something. Ideas?
You could sautee some chicken in a pan, along with some garlic, tomatoes, onions, peppers, etc. When that is all cooked, put it in a glass baking pan, top with a layer of broken tortilla chips and some shredded cheese, bake for 10 minutes or so until the cheese is melted and golden brown. Serve with salsa and sour cream. Just came up with that idea - never actually tried it. I'd bet it would be good, though.
