Tuna Casserole

Amy Herald


You can substitute the 2 cups potato chips with two cups of shredded cheddar if you prefer. My mom made this a lot when we were kids. My siblings and I all loved it and now make it for our families. Truth be told my kids hate it, but they can just go make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich 'cause this stuff is the bomb!
