A fun meal that I grew up with is called "Magic Mountains." You start by putting crushed tortilla chips on a plate, cover them with chili, then add a variety of toppings. We had the basics (cheese, lettuce, tomato, salsa, avocado, sour cream), but the real fun came with the other toppings available. We always had shredded coconut, peanuts, and black olives. Raisins are also tasty. It is a great meal for a crowd because each guest get their cooking creativity going by bringing a topping for the mountain, and no one is overwhelmed with meal prep.

A word of warning: start with a small amount of tortilla chips - the mountains get huge pretty fast!

The Magic Mt recipe is also called "Haystacks" if you use either rice or
chinese noodles instead of the chips. It is always a winner.
