This old American classic of the post-Depression period was as varied as the cooks preparing it. Some added chiles and cilantro for a Southwestern flavor; others used chow mein noodles and cashews in lieu of chips for an Asian touch. This version includes eggs and olives, which, of course, can be omitted or substituted with other add-ins of choice.
