Chicken 'n Chips Casserole

My first job out of college was a Home Economics teacher at a Junior High in Columbus, Ohio.  I taught there until our first child was born.  We then had three more children and I was busy with them.  We later moved to Michigan for a brief time and then on to Texas.  In Texas, I had various part-time jobs and then I landed a part-time job at Frito-Lay, where I worked for almost seventeen years.  Frito-Lay was one wonderful company to work for!  When I first started there, a friend gave me this recipe.  It's an easy casserole to throw together and I always think of her and our times together.

4 chicken breast halves, cooked and chopped
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup salsa
2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, or a Mexican blend
2 cups Fritos (I use broken Tostitos)

Grease a 2 quart casserole dish.

Mix together soup, sour cream and salsa. 

Layer half of  each of the chicken, soup mixture, cheese, then chips.  Repeat.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until heated through.
