Food Fashion and Flow: Chicken Dorito Casserole

Chicken Dorito Casserole

I must confess, there is nothing healthy about this recipe. It is oozing with cheese, layered with nacho cheese Doritos and void of any nutritional value, but I still think you should eat it. Why? Well, it's pretty damn good and you can always balance this out with a green salad on the side. 

This recipe has been in my family for years and was given to me by a close friend of our family. This is perfect on a cold winter day, or when you want to have something cheesy and indulgent. To save time, just shred a rotisserie chicken and in about 30-45 minutes you will have a pretty tasty meal to sink your teeth into:-)

Start with onion and saute until translucent and fragrant

Then the onions get combined with cooked shredded chicken. I always use leftover rotisserie chicken, but you can also poach chicken breasts and shred when they are done

Nacho cheese Doritos are generously layered throughout the casserole

Cheese makes everything better. I like to use a blend of Mexican cheese, but this works fantastic with plain cheddar

1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cups shredded chicken
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (or more to your own personal taste)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup cream of tomato soup
1/2 cup milk 
1/2 cup sour cream
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1/2 packet of taco seasoning
1 16 oz bag Nacho Cheese Doritos

DirectionsSaute onions in a small skillet and set aside. In a mixing bowl combine chicken, sauteed onions cream of chicken soup, milk, sour cream, Rotel tomatoes and taco seasoning. 

In a greased baking 2 quart baking dish, put a layer of crushed Doritos, layer with chicken and cheese, and Doritos, and keep layering until you end with Doritos.  Sprinkle generously with cheese and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Note: You can crush your Doritos or keep them whole. I usually crush the bottom layer and leave the rest of them whole. When done, top each serving with a dollop of sour cream.

Bon Appetit!

This looks so yummy, LV! I know I don't need this, especially since I overindulged for Thanksgiving. But I'm going to have to give this a try. When I grab up one of those rotisserie chickens from the grocery store, I will be making it. I just know the kids are gonna love it!

I always balance my unhealthy dishes with salad! I will have to try this but with plain tortilla chips. I don't really eat doritos.

LOL I love it that you make no apologies to the food police. Sometimes we just want to eat something that tastes good and that means it's full of fat, sugar or cheese. Sometimes all 3. :) Love it!
