1 1/2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese
1/2 (14 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
1/2 (4 oz.) can green chilies, drained and chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and brown beef until cooked through and no longer pink.
Drain fat, reserving 1 tablespoon, and saute onions until softened and tender.
Return beef to skillet and season with taco seasoning, salt and pepper, then add green chilies and corn kernels to the skillet.
Transfer mixture to a large baking dish (9×13 or 11×15) and stir in cheese, salsa and chicken soup.
In a separate bowl, mix together cream cheese, sour cream and chili powder until smooth, then spread mixture over the beef and vegetables.
Place baking dish in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, then remove and gently push chips into the cream cheese surface.
