Notes


*I used a very thin generic brand of chips, so they softened very quickly. Keep in mind, the chips will continue to soften as they sit, so it’s important to stir the chips in then serve immediately so they still have a bit of crunch. If you’re using a thicker chip you may need to keep the dish on the stove for a bit longer.
