Introduction: Blake's New Mexico Dorito Casserole

When I was little, my family watched Good Morning America. Every now and then, they'd have recipes on the show. Dorito Casserole was one that became a tradition at my house. As I grew older and began to travel and cook, I acquired a love for New Mexico cuisine. The following recipe is the food Child of the two, and is the best recipe for Dorito casserole that I have ever tasted.

You will need the following ingredients:

• 1 Family Sized Bag of Doritos (save 2 cups for casserole topping)
• 1 onion (optional)
• 1 regular can of chili beans
• 15-ounces of green enchilada sauce
• 8-ounce can tomato sauce
• 1½ cups of shredded Mexican blend cheese
• 1-2 cans of green chilies (or homemade if possible)
• 1 rotisserie chicken breast (or grilled) 

Topping Ingredients:

• 2 cups Doritos
• 1/2 cup of shredded Mexican blend (or WAY more)
• 1¼ cups sour cream
• (optional) a few leftover green chilies for aesthetics

Step 1: Preparation

-(optional) Sauté the onion with a little bit of salt, pepper, and olive oil.

-Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (about 190 degrees C).

-Crumble 6 cups of Doritos with your hands into a large mixing bowl

Step 2: Cook!

-Add the onion, the chili beans, the chicken breast, the green enchilada sauce, tomato sauce, most of the green chilies, and 1½ cups of shredded Mexican cheese to the crumbled Doritos.


-Place mixture into an 8½ x 11-inch oven-proof casserole dish.

-Bake for 20 minutes.

-Remove from the oven.

-Spread the sour cream over the top of the casserole with a large spoon or rubber spatula.

-Top with remaining 2 cups Doritos.

-Sprinkle with the 1/2 cup of the shredded Mexican cheese (or WAY more. I pile like 3 cups of the stuff on there)

-Bake for 5 minutes

Step 3: EAT

I, personally, like to decorate the end result with Doritos, green chilies, and sour cream (as demonstrated in the first picture) but that's up to you!
