- 4 cups peeled, thinly sliced potatoes
- 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 3/4 cup crushed Frito corn chips
- 1 cup or more of milk
- Salt and paprika
Cover the potatoes with cold water, let stand 15 minutes, and drain well. Arrange in a layer in a greased baking dish, dot with butter, and season well with salt and paprika.
Reserving 1/3 of the cheddar cheese, alternate layers of buttered, seasoned potatoes with grated cheese. Mix the remaining 1/3 of cheese with the crushed corn chips, and add as last layer.
Pour milk over all until it can be seen through the top layer. Bake at 350 degrees for 1-1/4 hours or until tender.
