1 (10 ounce) bag
nacho cheese-flavored corn chips (such as Doritos®), crushed
onion, finely chopped
1 (14.5 ounce) can
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of chicken soup
1 (10.75 ounce) can
cream of mushroom soup
1 (4.5 ounce) can
chopped green chiles
2 1/2 cups
chopped cooked chicken
1 (8 ounce) package
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Very good! Could also be a dip! Definitely would make again! I used 4 cheese Mexican....really turned out wonderful...thanks for the recipe, Sarah! I also used fresh chiles, but use what you have on hand.
I thought this recipe was a good baseline recipe. I did however make some modification based on what I had on hand. I used plain tortilla chips in place of the Doritos, added chopped sweet bell peppers to the onion step and substituted taco seasoning for the chili powder and ground cumin. I also used leftover Rotisserie chicken. I layered crushed chips, chicken/soup mixture, shredded cheese twice ending with shredded cheese on top. It tasted even better for leftovers the next day!
Loved it. We avoid canned soups (salty) so I used a couple of cups of heavy white sauce (Béchamel) made with broth; I sauteed sliced mushrooms with the onion. For convenience, I used a small rotisserie chicken from my supermarket deli... almost all the meat except for what I nibbled. Sarah's other chicken recipes are all worth a look... Swiss Chicken Casserole... we love everything chicken.
This was delicious. I highly recommend this.
Just barely !!!!! OK I even added some extra spices to flavor it up more. I would not make it again. Nothing special where the family all said yum make this agin. If you like bland then it will suit your taste
