Recipe: Dorito Casserole

In this one I boiled chicken legs and used that meat, so it's dark

From one of our weekly menus via E-Mealz

This recipe serves about 4. I would double for more than 5 people.

Dorito Casserole

1/2 bag nacho Doritos
1 can evaporated milk (I use FF)
1 can cream of mushroom soup (or chicken, or celery)
1/4lb Velveeta or 1 cup shredded cheddar
1 small onion, minced and cooked til translucent (or dehydrated minced onion)
1 and 1/2 chicken breasts, cubed and cooked
1/4 c cheddar for garnish

Bring milk and soup to a high simmer/almost boil in the microwave or sauce pan. Add in cheese and stir until melted. Add in onions. Set aside.
In a casserole dish, layer chips, then 1/2 the chicken, then 1/2 the sauce. Repeat. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until golden/bubbly. Remove from oven and top with grated cheese.

I used chicken or celery soup because the hubby hates mushrooms, but that's what the recipe calls for.

I think you could change up a few ingredients and have a totally new flavor. Like maybe ranch Doritos and a white cheese, like mozzarella or Swiss.

Anyway, it's fairly easy and a crowd pleaser!

  1. Mmmm...Yum! I am going to try this. :-) I have been in a cooking storm lately! Last night I did a "Chopped" inspired pan-fried chicken breast with thick-sliced bacon drizzled in a pork sauce, oven-roasted asparagus (with olive oil, fresh ground pepper & salt), and my favorite fiesta rice (long grain white rice with onions sauteed in butter, salt, pepper & thyme). Tonight I did a little simpler fare...fresh snapped green beans, cheesy scalloped potatoes, and beef patties.
