How about a Frito Pie? My mom used to make this.

Frito Pie

This seems to be the most popular version of the traditional casserole. My mom's tweaks below.

3 cups Fritos corn chips
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
2-1/2 cups chili (your favorite -- homemade, canned, whatever)
Preheat oven to 350F.

Spread 2 cups of Fritos in a baking dish. Sprinkle half the onion and half the cheese over the Fritos. Pour the chili over the onion and cheese. Sprinkle the remaining Fritos, onion and cheese over the chili.

Bake until cheese is bubbly. Serve hot.

My Mom used to start with a layer of stewed tomatoes, the Fritos, the cheese, the chili, and another layer, ending with cheese. It was a good Saturday thing.
