My kids love this casserole. It's quite simple to make, yet tasty.

Since my first try on 2-20-08, I finally made this recipe again--and had better results this time. I think the first time, I had crushed the chips too finely, thus using far more than I needed. They should be crushed LIGHTLY, with your hand, leaving them in fairly large pieces. The 9 X 13 pan was still pretty full (a little above the top), but the foil over it helped everything to stay in place and the meal was delicious. A great balance of everything. Yum! We'll add it to our "regulars."
