Comfort food

Last night I made (yes, I cooked—will wonders never cease?) Chicken Sopa. This was one of my favorite dishes as a kid, and it was just as good as I remembered. It’s quick, easy, tasty, filling, and a good way to get rid of leftover turkey. Yes, [info]verminiusrex and [info]gmskarka, I’m thinking of you. :)
So if anyone’s interested, here’s the recipe:

Chicken Sopa

2 chickens, cut-up—my mom always just used chicken breasts. Last night I used leftover turkey and it worked really well.
2 cans, cream of chicken soup
3 small cans, evaporated milk (if halved use one small can)
1 can, chopped green chilis (do not halve)
Doritos (cheese-flavored) or corn chips
sharp cheddar cheese, grated

You’ll need a baking dish and a mixing bowl.

Mix the chicken, the soup, the milk, and the chilis together.
Line the bottom of the baking dish with the chips.
Layer on the mixture.
Cover the top with the grated cheese.
Bake at 350º for 30 minutes.

You can eat it with a fork or scoop it up with additional chips, like a thick dip.

This serves six, which is why I’ve included instructions for halving it.
