Anyone have any good ideas for uses with crunched up chips, crackers, tortilla chips, nacho tortilla chips, etc so that they aren't just thrown away?  I have used them for casserole toppings is all & all I made was a tuna casserole with potato chips & a taco casserole with the tortilla chips.  Any other ideas?

 you could use the crunched up tortillas for a taco salad. i dont know but could you use the crunched up potato chips for a meatloaf instead of the bread crumbs.

I add them to anything that would have used bread crumbs.  Meatloaf, meatballs.

you can also add them to soup as a thickener.

Spread 1 pkg. cream cheese on bottom of 9 x 13 baking dish.  Top with a can of chili mixed with 1 lb. browned ground beef.  Top with 1 cup shredded cheese, crushed chips, and another cup of shredded cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 40 minutes.

Potato Chip Cookies! They are really good and require crumbled plain potato chips.

My idea would have been taco pie or casserole too. What about in soups? Sorry I don't have any other ideas.

Pretty much anything that requires bread crumbs.  You can even make your own shake and bake mixture.

Oven 'fried' chicken.  Just substitute the breadcrumbs with crushed chips.  Potato chips work best, IMO, but you could probably use corn tortilla chips or crackers as well.
