  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded or diced (rotisserie chicken works well)
  • 1 bag (about 10 ounces) Doritos, any flavor you prefer, crushed
  • 1 can (10.75 ounces) cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or any preferred cheese blend)
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes (fresh or canned)
  • 1/2 cup diced green bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh cilantro or green onions for garnish (optional)

Step by Step:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked chicken, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, diced tomatoes, green bell peppers, and onions. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  3. Add the chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to the mixture. Adjust the seasonings to suit your taste preferences, ensuring a harmonious balance of flavors.
  4. Now comes the exciting part – layering the casserole! Begin by spreading half of the crushed Doritos at the bottom of the greased baking dish. Next, evenly spread half of the creamy chicken mixture over the Doritos layer. Sprinkle half of the shredded cheddar cheese on top.
  5. Repeat the layering process with the remaining crushed Doritos, chicken mixture, and shredded cheese until all the ingredients are used up. The top layer should be a delightful blend of cheese and crushed Doritos.
  6. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the casserole is heated through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Once done, remove the foil and let the casserole bake for an additional 5 minutes, allowing the top to get a golden, crispy finish.
  8. Take the casserole out of the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh cilantro or green onions if desired, adding a pop of color and freshness.
