Comforting Tuna Casserole

This one of those simple, warm, cozy stand-bys, that my mom recently reminded me of. This particular recipe is one she remembers my nana making for her and my aunt, sans chips. And in turn my mom made this for me, also sans chips. So chips are optional too. But really, what's more comforting than some salty/crunchy goodness on top of a creamy warm casserole? I'm in.

2 - 3 cups cooked rice
1 can tuna
1 can mushroom soup plus 1/2 can milk
1 C frozen peas (optional)
1/2 large bag potato chips crushed

Add drained tuna, peas and mushroom soup to rice. Stir to combine. Place in casserole and top with finely crushed potato chips. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until hot.

What's your twist on this warm, winter staple?

I'm touched that you love this recipe. Remember to drain the tuna, or add it to the water you cook the rice in.

Gloria and I used to play a game while eating this, but I can't remember the details. We'd eat some, make up a rule, then eat some more. So easy and so satisfying. The 50's equivalent to fast food.

And to bring it up date a little, perhaps using the low fat version of the canned soup? Thanks for reminding me of this one.
