    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.

    I made this last night and it was a hit with the whole family. I used corn chips and really liked the flavor of that. I didn't use the whole jar of green chilies because I've never used them before and wasn't sure if I'd like them, but I did. This was a very easy, tasty recipe. Thanks so much for sharing.

    I was looking for a recipe to use up leftover chicken and this one fit the bill. I added 1/2 cup sour cream to the chicken mixture and only used about 3/4 bag of tortilla chips. I crushed the tortilla chips lightly before adding them and baked this for about 20 minutes. It turned out very good. We all went back for seconds. Thanks for posting this tasty recipe!
