    The Cantankerous Chef's Note:

    This has been my absolute favorite dish since i was a kid. I used to beg my mom to make it, and when she did, there were never any leftovers. Beware though, it's one of those dishes where you wanna stuff as much down as you can, and before you know it, youre immobile for the next 2 hours! Dont even contemplate another meal tonight. This one's to die for.

    • 1 (10 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
    • 1 (10 ounce) can cream of chicken soup

    • shredded mild cheddar cheese

      Really enjoyed this one; great break from the normal chicken routine. I will definitely make it again, maybe next time will choose low-fat soups and chips to make it a bit more healthy. I forgot the milk in the soup mixture but still came out great! Yummy.

      This was a perfect simple meal. We added a little bit of cheese in with each layer, and we mixed in a little specialty jalapeno/habanero cheese on top with the mild cheddar to give it a bit more kick, because we like things spicy. I used a 9x13 oval pan to cook it in, and a grand total of three layers. The end result was great. It's a fun and easy recipe and we definitely wanted more than one serving.

      Very good recipe. Quick easy and CHEAP! Made for my church event and everyone LOVED it. Chips do become soggy but it didn't bother me!
