Doritos Cheesy Chicken Casserole

I saw this recipe at Plain Chicken and made a point to save it for the upcoming menu making. Nacho Cheese Dorito chips, with creamy, cheesy, chicken? Yes, please!

This is a very creamy and gooey casserole - the chips are a nice addition to the dish, but I found the creamy chicken to be the center star! I thought this was best served with additional chips on the side, sort of for scooping and used the casserole as almost a yummy, cheesy, chicken dip! My son and I both really enjoyed the flavor of this dish.

Doritos Chicken Cheese Casserole slightly adapted from Plain Chicken
3 cups cooked chicken, diced to bite-sized pieces or shredded
8 oz sour cream
1 10.5-oz can cream of mushroom soup
1 10.5-oz can cream of chicken soup
1 10-oz can Rotel tomatoes
1 15-oz can of corn, drained
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 13.5-oz bag Nacho Cheese Doritos, crushed

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray.  Crush the entire bag of Doritos and cover the bottom of the dish. 
  3. Reserve one cup of cheese. Mix together remaining ingredients (chopped chicken, sour cream, both  cans of cream soup, Rotel tomatoes, corn, and 1 cup cheese) in a large bowl. 
  4. Pour chicken mixture over the Doritos. Bake for 20 min.
  5. Sprinkle the remaining cheese evenly over the casserole and bake 5 additional minutes, or until cheese is melted.

What's cooking, love?
