Ingredients You'll Need

Here's what you'll need to create this delectable dish:

  • 3 cups cooked, shredded chicken breast
  • 1 can (10.5 oz) cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar or Mexican blend recommended)
  • 1 bag (10.5 oz) Doritos (nacho cheese flavor recommended)

Step-by-Step Cooking Instructions

Follow these easy steps to bring this casserole to life:

1. Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) to ensure it's ready for baking once your casserole is assembled.

2. Mix the Chicken Filling

In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded chicken, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and diced tomatoes with green chilies. Mix until well combined.

3. Prepare the Baking Dish

Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish to prevent sticking. Layer half of the Doritos on the bottom of the dish, spreading them out evenly.

4. Layer the Casserole

  • Pour half of the chicken mixture over the layer of Doritos.
  • Sprinkle half of the shredded cheese over the chicken mixture.
  • Repeat the layers with the remaining Doritos, and chicken mixture, and end with a layer of cheese on top.

5. Bake the Casserole

Place the assembled casserole in the preheated oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the casserole is bubbly and the cheese is melted and slightly golden.

Serving and Storage Recommendations

  • Serve Hot: Garnish your casserole with chopped cilantro and a dollop of sour cream for an extra pop of flavor and color.
  • Store Leftovers: Place any leftovers in an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat thoroughly before serving again.
