Yum! I used baked tortilla chips, and it was just a tiny bit soggier I think, but still very tasty, without all the fat of fried chips! Yummie!

I requested this on the message boards to use up some extra Fritos. This is definitely different, but I really liked it. Like Rita, it barely covers the bottom of a 13 x 9 pan. I used about 2 snack-size bags of Fritos. I added about a cup of milk to the soup/chicken mixture. I will make this again to use up Fritos. It is very tasty - I had to go back for seconds.

Interesting! I had 2 cups cubed leftover chicken that I used. The chicken mixture just covered the bottom of the pan. I used 10 ounce can of soup and a large onion. It only made 1 layer. I used 1-1/2 cups crushed tortilla chips.Baked for 15-20 minutes.
