Doritos aren't just a snack anymore thanks to this cheesy casserole

Print this recipe
Crispy, cheesy Doritos make the perfect topping for this creamy casserole. The recipe below combines chicken with Southwestern flavors and spices for a dish that's richly flavored and super comforting. And best of all? It couldn't be easier to make.
Take advantage of condensed cream of chicken soup to form the base of this casserole. Add-ins like black beans, chiles, corn, and cheese add even more flavor. The Doritos over the top provide tons of crunch and pizzazz, and a shredded blend of Mexican cheeses is just the icing on the cake.
