Layered Mexican Casserole

I found this recipe on the Internet a couple of years ago but I can't remember were.

Layered Mexican Casserole

1/2 lb. ground beef
1 can (11 oz.) whole kernel corn, drained
1-1/2 cups Thick 'N Chunky Salsa
1 cup Cottage Cheese
1 container (8 oz.) Sour Cream
5 cups tortilla chips, divided
1-1/2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided

Preheat oven to 350°F. Brown meat in large skillet; drain. Add corn and salsa; mix well. Cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Set aside. Mix cottage cheese and sour cream.
Layer 2 cups of the chips, 1/2 of the meat mixture, 3/4 cup of the Cheddar cheese and 1/2 of the cottage cheese mixture in 2-quart casserole dish. Repeat layers of chips, meat mixture and cottage cheese mixture.

Bake 35 minutes. Insert remaining chips around edge of casserole; top with remaining 3/4 cup cheddar cheese. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
