Tuna Casserole

First time making a casserole. I know, I know, that is the most basic of the basics, but I have never really eaten at home until recently. I was always eating out, so making main dishes is quite the adventure for me. But, not to toot my own horn, this was quite the success.






I actually received an hour long compliment on this dish. I wish I was exaggerating, but it's true. Maybe it was the potato chips sprinkled on top that did it. You know how there are always those potato chip crumbs that no one wants to eat. Well, you can now put it to good use. I would suggest using Jalapeno potato chips if you can, I used those and it added some extra spices that made for a wonderful dish!

  5. Are you telling me that you don't tip the bag back and drop all the leftover potato chip crumbs into your mouth? You're so missing out! :)~ In all seriousness, this looks like a perfect weeknight meal and I can tell by looking at the recipe that my kids would easily gobble this up!
