Gosh, I told my husband not to buy chips anymore because we cannot eat the whole pack, then he bought two packs when his friend came over. Obviously, his friends do not care about tortilla chips either, so I am left here by myself trying to consume all of it. Then an enlightenment came, ” Aha! I can make it into a Chicken Taco Casserole! ” All of a sudden, the chips were gone just like that.

The problem with this excessive obsessiveness is, kitchen counter are meant to be a place where your food leftover sits. So, whenever I see foods sitting on it, I do not want to waste it, so I eat it. In this case, it is the chips. I am tired of eating it. So it has to go, not on my stomach but to someone else’s stomach. I am thinking of my husband’s belly and my kids’. So I have to be creative on making these chips into something else. Something in which the chips are hidden ( kinda) , for them to eat it. And how lucky can I get! I found this recipe.

3. This recipe looks easy to make. I found this recipe from All You magazine and I thought I can try it. This recipe yields 6 to 8 servings. I tweaked it a little bit to fit my taste. It  is perfect for pack lunch and it is really good when you eat it the next day.
