Discard the marinade.
Brush the grilled chicken with the chilled dressing, sprinkle with the cheese and broil until the cheese has melted.
Serve the chicken over a bed of crumbled chips.
To prepare the dressing:
Whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, salsa, milk, Cajun spice, parsley, Tabasco, dill weed, and cumin.
Cover, and refrigerate until needed.
