What Can I Do With Crushed Tortilla Chips?

Good Question

Here's a great question from Sofia on those tortilla chips left at the very bottom of the bag:

I'm a big fan of Trader Joe's organic blue corn chips but not so much of the broken bits left at the bottom of the bag that are too small to use in nachos or dip in salsa but are there in enough quantity to make me balk at tossing them out.

I hate sending them to the food scrap recycling bin without first asking if they might lend themselves to some creative culinary use. Anything fun I can do with crushed tortilla chips?
