  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Combine mushroom soup, milk, and tuna in a saucepan over medium heat; cook until well blended and warmed through, about 5 minutes. Pour mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish; add noodles and mix well. Top noodles with cheese food and sprinkle potato chips over cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling, 30 to 45 minutes.

I tweaked this a bit, added in a can Cream of Celery Soup with the Mushroom soup, and some frozen peas...topped it with some crispy chow mein noodles!
