This is a tuna casserole that even my picky family loves! The potato chips give the casserole a crunchy crust.

I made this last night and it was delicious. Used a prior reviewer's suggestion and made it in a round 2-qt casserole dish instead of a 9x13-inch pan, to avoid having a dry casserole (other than that I followed the recipe exactly). Like previous reviewers have commented, it was just a tad on the dry side. Wasn't so dry that my fiance and I didn't enjoy eating it (it was really tasty!), but could use about half a can more soup. I used red onions which made for a colorful dish. I will definitely be making this again - it's a keeper - but next time I'm going to add 1/2 can more soup to it.

Overall the receipe is very good. As indicated by others, it was dry. Considering using a whole bag of noodles, I did add another can of soup and 1/2 cup of milk. Next time I make this, I think I will add sour cream in addition to the extra can of soup and milk, the mixture really needs to be pretty soupy when baked, since the noodles soak up so much of the liquid. Where did the cayenne pepper substitute come from, I didn't see it in the receipe, although it would be a good addition. Thanks for the recipe.

Very Good! I usually just "wing it" when it comes to making tuna casserole, but there is a first time for everything, and I actually followed a recipe this time! As other reviewers stated, I too added some milk to make it more creamy. I then added about a 1/4 cup of miracle whip as well for a little zip, then I did my usual doctoring with onion and garlic powders. Instead of using potatoe chips on top I used crushed crackers that I pulsed a few times in the food processor with some melted garlic butter. The end reult was a very yummy tuna casserole.
