What You’ll Need
1 bag (7 ounces) bag of Doritos, crushed (about 4 cups crushed)
2 to 3 cups diced cooked chicken
1 cup sour cream
1 can (10 1/2 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup
1/4 cup finely minced onion
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup grated sharp or mild cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
How to Make It
Heat the oven to 350° F (180° C/Gas 4). Grease a 2-quart casserole dish or spray it with nonstick cooking spray.
Cover bottom of casserole with half of the crushed Doritos, about 2 cups.
In a large bowl combine the diced chicken, sour cream, condensed soup, onion, chili powder, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Sprinkle the remaining crushed Doritos over the chicken mixture and then top with the shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheeses.
Bake the casserole in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the topping is melted and lightly browned.
Tips and Variations
Add a can of diced mild green chile peppers or a finely chopped jalapeno pepper to the chicken filling mixture.
Replace the cheddar and mozzarella cheeses with a Mexican blend or taco seasoned shredded cheese.
Make the casserole with leftover turkey instead of chicken.
Add a few tablespoons of crumbled bacon to the chicken and sour cream mixture.
Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of finely chopped green or red bell pepper to the filling mixture.
Top the filling with a small can of drained sliced ripe olives before adding the crushed Dorito topping.
