Mexican Dorito Chicken

Chris works for ConAgra Foods.  One of my many favorite ConAgra products is Ro-tel.  I love all you can do with Ro-tel tomatoes... and they have so many yummy varieties.  I have lots of recipes that "call for" Ro-tel.  I often make King Ranch Chicken and I love White Queso.  You can totally be creative.

Chris was visiting with a co-worker and she shared one of her favorite Ro-tel recipes.  I wasn't sure if I would love the Nacho Cheese Doritos in a dish... but this turned out great.  The teachers loved it and Chris finished off the extras for dinner.  I made the meat mixture the night before and then layered the Doritoes and chicken mixture and baked it at school.  I loved making the meat mixture early and then layering it right before baking!

Enjoy this new recipe.  I think all kiddos.. and most adults like Nacho Cheese Doritoes!

Also, please make that Cranberry Salsa you see in the picture.  It is SO yummy - perfect holiday dish!

Dorito Chicken Casserole

2 cups shredded cooked chicken (I used diced chicken breast meat)
2 cups Mexican cheese, shredded and divided
1 (10 oz ) can Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 cup milk ( I had cream :)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 can Ro-tel tomatoes, drained
1/2 packet taco seasoning
1 large 10 oz bag Nacho Doritos, crushed
shredded lettuce, optional
diced tomatoes, optional

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix together chicken, 1 cup of the cheese, soup, milk, sour cream, Ro-tel tomatoes and taco seasoning.  Mix well.

Grease a 2 quart baking dish.  add a layer of crushed Doritos, a layer of the chicken mixture and then another layer of crushed Doritos and the last of the chicken mixture.  Top with a cup of the cheese and sprinkle with a few more crushed Doritos.  Cover and bake at 350 for 25- 30 minutes.  ( I didn't cover mine and it turned out great)  Remove from oven.  Garnish with chopped lettuce and diced tomato if desired.

This was good. Except I used Sharp cheddar, Hot Rotel tomatoes with Lime and used Olive Oil to soften the oinons. Also, I made my own little mexican chicken and cut it up. It was good for something pretty easy.
