1. Heat pan, add oil. Crumble tempeh into pan and cook with seasonings, and all veggies except corn and tomatoes. Cook about 5 minutes, over medium heat.

3. On a baking sheet spread chips in a single layer. Top with tempeh mixture and cheese. Bake at 350F for 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted (I used the toaster oven).
