Dorito® Casserole

Recipe by  

"This recipe was created after a couple of years of tweaking. I've successfully served it to people ranging in age from 6 to 60! My husband loves it so much that he insists I make it for him every week. It also keeps well as leftovers. One extra pound of ground chicken may be substituted for the ground pork."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. Mix crushed tortilla chips, tomatoes, cream of chicken soup, green bell pepper, green chile peppers, 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, and 1/2 cup pepperjack cheese together in a large bowl.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground pork in hot skillet until crumbly and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Transfer pork to tortilla chips mixture, retaining drippings in the skillet.
  4. Cook and stir ground chicken in reserved drippings until crumbly and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Transfer cooked chicken to the pork-tortilla chip mixture; mix well. Pour mixture into the prepared casserole dish; top with 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese and 1/2 cup pepperjack cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling and cheeses are melted, about 30 minutes. Allow casserole to cool 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

We found it a little bland. I added hot sauce and it was better. I don't think I'll make it again.

This recipe deserves more than the low rating it's gotten so far. It's as bland or spicy, as interesting or basic as you make it. This is the type recipe that is soooo flexible it's ridiculous! :D I sauteed some onion & garlic. Added about 3-4c leftover chicken, 1 cream of chicken soup, sour cream, 1 can undrained rotel, a cup of cheese, half cup black olives, some green onions ... the dorito part was actually about half doritos & the other half bottomofthebag cheezits, tortilla chips, potato chips. Oh, I added 1t spicy blackening seasoning. 'Fit in an 8x8 with more cheese then chips on top. Some black or pinto beans & corn would be a good addition. Jalapenos on top. 'Think you could skip the sour cream in it & just save that per serving. Tip: Watch the salt - meaning don't add any. Those chips add enough. This is quite filling, too. I'm tempted to say it's "good teenage boy food"! :) A few days later: K said I can make it again. :O That's as close to a compliment as I usually get - especially for an entree. Wow. :D

Lacking a good flavor, need some spices added to the meat.
