Sorry I don’t have a photo to share. I took one but it was too dark and it was late and we were starving so I didn’t take any more. You can click the link below to check out some great photos

Doritos Chicken Casserole

1 bag (10 oz) Doritos Cool Ranch flavored tortilla chips, coarsely crushed (about 6 cups)

1/4 cup butter, melted

2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese (8 oz)

1 jar (15 oz) four cheese Alfredo pasta sauce

1 tablespoon Old El Paso original taco seasoning mix (from 1-oz package)

3 cups shredded cooked chicken

1 can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen organic fire roasted diced tomatoes, undrained

Heat oven to 350°F
Spray 13×9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with cooking spray
In large bowl, toss Doritos and melted butter until well coated
Sprinkle 4 cups of the Doritos evenly in bottom of casserole
Top with 1/2 cup of the cheese
In large bowl, stir pasta sauce and taco seasoning mix until well blended
Add chicken, tomatoes and 1/2 cup of the cheese; stir until well mixed
Spoon evenly over Doritos in baking dish.
Bake uncovered 30 minutes
Sprinkle with remaining Doritos and remaining 1 cup cheese
Bake about 5 minutes longer or until hot and cheese is melted


I used frozen pulled chicken and couldn’t find that brand of fire roasted tomatoes so I bought a different brand. Other than that I followed the recipe.

This was really quick and easy to make and we loved it! My son even got seconds, so that told me he really liked it. I’ll definitely make this again but I think I’ll make it with ground beef,  more taco seasoning,  and nacho cheese Doritos and see how we like it that way. Either way, I’m adding this recipe to my dinner rotation.

  1. I love Mexican / Southwest flavors, so I bet I’d like this. Also this sounds easy.

  2. That really sounds easy, but with lots of nice Southwest/Mexican flavors.

  3. Oh, my, this sounds so good! Thank you for sharing this recipe, Vicki!

  4. Sounds nice – I relate to your photo issues. Sometimes I can rescue it by photographing leftovers the next day in better light. Cheers

  5. You could switch up the ingredients for a casserole like this, I love it! I would keep the chicken but beef surely would work. Don`t you love an easy meal that everyone loves 🙂

    • I love recipes that you can change up to suit your likes too, and even though my son isn’t a fan of white chicken he still liked it and went back for seconds.

  6. This sounds really good. I love Cool Ranch Doritos.

  7. This is reminiscent of the casseroles my mom used to make. I will definitely Pin and plan to try it when the weather is a bit cooler.

    • My kitchen is huge and open to the the rest of the house so it never gets hot from the oven. That will change when we move though.

  8. I love all the flavors in the recipe so I’m sure it’s a winner. My kids would love it.

  9. This sounds pretty good. Cool Ranch Doritos are too strong in flavor for me to eat alone but in a casserole I get they’d be good.

    There is a corn salad made with Fritos which I make and people devour. Sounds weird but the salty chip thing makes these dishes pretty tasty.

    • I feel the same way about the Cool Ranch. When I make taco salad my son uses them but I use Nacho Cheese.

      I hope you share your corn salad recipe sometime, it sounds good. I love Fritos.

  10. We love Mexican food in my family. I’m sure we’d love this meal.

  11. My family might like this. I’m not a Doritos fan, but I think with all the other ingredients even I might like it.
