Hi. My family makes a very simular version of this for every holiday function. Everyone stands around table fighting over it! When Gram makes it she always makes two so there is less fighting! lol We dont use tortilla chips we use Ritz and its fabulous!

Made for My 3 Chefs. Quick and yummy too! We had this for lunch today along with a big bowl of tomato soup. (We are so bored of sandwiches!) The only change I made was that after cooking in the micro, I broiled it for 2 minutes just to brown the cheese topping. This would be nice with crunchy bread sticks and crackers too. Good post Chris, thx! (photo to follow)
