These were great. I used tortilla chips because that is what we had. The flavor combination was just great. I ended up adding a can of cream of chicken soup simply because the mixture was too thick to spread on the chips-they broke too easily. I also didn't use the jalapeno because we have toddlers and we just aren't fond of hot things. We will be making these again. They were even great the next day as leftovers. MMMmmm.
