Mexican Chicken

This was DELICIOUS!!! I have made this recipe a few times in the past and thought it was okay. A friend shared this same recipe with me BUT there was one difference in the ingredient list. Doritos instead of soft flour tortilla shells!! It was THE best change ever!!! It changed the recipe completely and made it taste SO much better!! (Thanks Laura!!)

You will need:
1 bag of Nacho Cheese flavored Doritos, crushed
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can of Rotel (I drained the juice off)
4 chicken breast halves, cooked and chopped
1- 8 oz. bag of Mexican blend cheese

Mix soups together in a bowl.

Spray bottom of 9x13 dish.

Layer in dish:
1/3 Doritos
1/2 soup mixture
1/2 of Rotel
1/2 of chicken
1/2 of cheese
Repeat layers.
Final layer will be the last of the Doritos.

I baked at 350 for about 30-40 minutes.

**I only put the Rotel on one side of the dish because it can get quite spicy at times, especially for the kids.

This is a meal that would work well as a freezer meal too!

ENJOY!!! :)


  1. Shelly,

    If you have or were to freeze this would you include the Doritos? I'm wondering if they would end up soggy.


  2. Hey Evelyn!

    I don't think the Doritos get soggy, but they would be softer than if you were to make it fresh. If it is something that really bothered you, you could just layer everything EXCEPT the Doritos and then when you were ready to use it top it with the Doritos and that way it wouldn't be a concern.
