Ingredients

  • 1 regular sized package of egg noodles
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 7 oz can Albacore Tuna canned in water
  • 1/2 - 3/4 can full of milk add more or less depending on how creamy you want it, I like it creamy
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 12 oz package frozen peas
  • 1/2 of a "large" block of Velveeta Cheese cut into slices
  • 1/2 bag of crushed Cool Ranch Doritos

Instructions

  1. Boil the egg noodles per package directions.
  2. In a small sauce pan boil your peas per package directions.
  3. In a large bowl combine your cream of mushroom soup, albacore tuna, milk, salt and ground pepper. Add more milk to make creamier if the mixture seems a little thick.
  4. Drain your noodles& peas and add them to the soup mixture and stir well.
  5. Place combined mixture into a 9x13 casserole dish and top with your Velveeta slices. Make sure the entire casserole is pretty much covered with cheese.
  6. Crush your Doritos and spread them evenly over the top of the cheese.
  7. Cover with foil and cook at 375° for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue to cook until the cheese is bubbling (about 15 additional minutes) on the sides and the Doritos start to brown slightly.

Recipe Notes

Depending on how thick you cut your cheese it may take more or less time to cook. I usually pull the casserole out of the oven at 45 minutes of cooking and check the cheese in the very middle of the casserole with a fork to make sure that it's melted. Sometimes it's not and it goes back in and gets checked every 5 minutes until it's ready.
