Ingredients for Dorito Casserole
To get started on making this Dorito casserole, grab all of your ingredients first. You’ll need one bag of nacho cheese Doritos, 3 ½ cups of cooked, shredded chicken, 1 (12-ounce) can of corn, 8 ounces of taco blend cheese, 1 (10-ounce) can of diced tomatoes, one (4-ounce) can of green chilies, a can of cream of chicken soup, 8 ounces of sour cream, and 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning. You’ll also want chopped cilantro for garnish.
Step by Step Instructions
Step 1: Once you have all of your ingredients ready, it’s time to get the Dorito casserole party started! First, preheat the oven to 350 F and grease a 9X13 pan. Then, grab a large mixing bowl and add the shredded chicken.
Step 2: Add in the corn, tomatoes, beans, and green chilies.
Step 3: Next up, add in the cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and cheese and stir it all up.
Step 4: Lastly, add in the taco seasoning and mix all of the ingredients together well.
Step 5: Once the casserole filling is ready, it’s time to layer! Add a layer of Doritos in the bottom of your pan and crush them with your hands to create the casserole’s base.
Step 6: Then, layer your casserole filling over top, spreading evenly. Place it in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Step 7: Next up, add another layer of Doritos on top and then sprinkle it with plenty of cheese. Place the casserole back in the oven for 5 minutes to bake and melt the cheese.
Step 8: Remove the casserole from the oven and top the dish with chopped cilantro before serving.
