Your favorite prepared salsa and stiff tortilla chips or corn chips for dipping

Brown ground beef and drain. Stir in green chilies, olives, tomato, chili powder, salt, and garlic powder. Let simmer for 20 minutes. Slice the cheese in 1/4” slices. Line the bottom and sides of a 8” x 8” baking dish with the cheese slices, reserving some for the top. Fill dish with the meat mixture and cover with the remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes or until cheese melts. Spoon the salsa over top and serve with tortilla chips for dipping. (Reheat if cheese becomes stiff.)
