This is a recipe that I came up with because I liked Luby's Cafeteria's squash casserole. I've made many variations of it over the years and my family has loved all of them. I will list the variations at the end of the recipe. I was a finalist in the Port Arthur News recipe contest with this recipe many years ago and most recently I was one of the final 4 in the 's You made It We ate It contest.

    Use cream of chicken soup instead of cream of mushroom
    Use cream of celery soup instead of cream of mushroom and add 1 tsp (or more to taste) poultry seasoning.
    Add 1/2 c dried cranberries.
    To use as a stuffing for your turkey add all of the fritos and stuff your turkey.
    I usually use the hickory smoked bacon but you can use cherrywood smoked, applewood smoked, maple, bourbon or whatever is your favorite flavor of thick sliced bacon.
    You can use regular fritos, ranch fritos or chili cheese fritos.
    this is a very versatile recipe. feel free to customize it to what your family likes.
