Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Very dry! I think it needs a 1/2 can to full can of milk added to soup mixture. Also calls for cheddar cheese, but never tells you when to add it in, I put it with soup and tuna and mixed. Good flavor, but really dry!,

@dlinn56 - It's up to you, based on whatever texture you prefer. However, for this dish we would recommend crumbling the Ritz crackers before sprinkling over top. - RecipeLion Editors

DO you smash the ritz crackers into crumbs or do you just lay them in there flat and whole. thanks

Hi Member 19176, Tuna salad sandwiches always seem to be a hit! Glad you enjoy the recipe. -Editors of RecipeLion

My family loves this recipe. I buy a very large can of tuna at BJ's, then make this recipe and a large bowl of tuna salad for sandwhiches. Still only lasts them about 24 hours.

lol ! good job

@MrsMo48 Chicken is a great idea! The cans of tuna should be 6 oz each, and we recommend a 9x13-inch pan. We have updated the recipe to include better details, so thanks!

my husband will NOT eat tuna, so i always use canned chicken in it's place. however, this recipe doesn't say how large the 2 cans of tuna are. nor does it list the size of the casserole dish or how many it serves. sorry, i'm a detail kinda gal. LOL
