Taco Casserole

1 lb    Lean ground beef or turkey  
1 Tbs    minced onions  
2 cans    tomato sauce (8 ounce can)  
1 cup    sliced black olives  
1 cup    small curd cottage cheese  
1 cup    sour cream  
3 - 4 cans    chili peppers, seeded and chopped  
1 pkg    crisp tortilla chips (6½ ounce)  
2 cups    Monterey Jack cheese, grated  
1 Tbs    garlic powder  
Saute meat in a skillet until it's crumbly and all the pink disappears. Drain fat. Add onion, garlic powder, tomato sauce and olives; heat and stir. Combine sour cream and cottage cheese with peppers. Crush tortilla chips slightly, leaving a few for garnish. Place half the chips in the bottom of a 2½ quart casserole. Add half the meat mixture, cover with sour cream mixture and sprinkle with half the grated cheese. Repeat the layers. Bake uncovered at 350° for 30-45 minutes until bubbly. Garnish with remaining chips. Serves 6.
