This one is always a hit, I fry up fresh corn tortillas for the chips, just make sure your oil is very hot, and give them a hit of salt when they are still hot.

Place one or more layers of peeled sliced baking potatoes.
Place a large of thin sliced onion
Put one or two cans of cream of mushroom soup or cream of potato soup.

Easy Chicken and Dumplings

Cook chicken debone set aside. Take flour tortillas cut in 1 inch by 4 inch strips. Drop tortillas into boiling chicken broth. Let cook for a few minutes. Add boneless chicken, salt and pepper to taste and it's ready to eat. If you like a thick broth thicken broth with some flour and water pour in hot broth and let thicken.

My sister takes this desert to pot lucks and to her kids ball games.

CREAM PUFF CAKE

Cream Puff Crust:
1 C Water 1 C Flour
1/2 C Margarine 4 Eggs
In sauce pan bring water and margarine to a boil. Add flour all at once, stir until mixture pulls away from sides of pan. Cool 10 to 15 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating well. Spoon into a 9 X 13 inch greased pan and level. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes. Cool.

Topping:
8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
2-1/2 C milk
2 4 oz Boxes Instant Pudding (flavor of your choice but most people like the Chocolate best)
8 oz Cool Whip
Chocolate syrup or 1-1/4 C Chocolate Chips, melted in microwave
Actually I find the Cool Whip a bit to sweet so mix 4 oz. each of Cool Whip and Cream Cheese instead.
While crust cools, make topping by mixing cream cheese, milk and pudding mix in a bowl. Chill about 15 minutes. Pour over cooled crust. Top with cool whip. Optional: Dribble with chocolate syrup and refrigerate. Makes 16 to 20 servings
Not in Sis's recipe but I love nuts so I sprinkle bit's of walnuts or almonds or browned coconut on top.

We had a potluck a couple of weeks ago at the church that David and Fiona go to. I took a blueberry cobbler. It was the first time I had attended a pot luck at this church and I wasn't sure what I should take. Now that I have an idea of what the others take, I will take something different next time. Now I can almost taste the recipes above and I know they will be good. And normally a church pot luck is a place where cooks will strut their stuff and put out some outstanding food. I tried some meat loaf and a scalloped potato dish though that I think the cooks forgot to put any seasoning in them. They reminded me much of of navy chow. I call it ATSL food (able to sustain life). Of course, I would never say anything about it as I am sure I would hurt someone's feelings. There probably were some tasty dishes there, but at least on this particular day, I missed them.
