This was a hit!
Although, due to stomach issue, I cannot use ro-tel so I replaced it with mild salsa and it was YUMMY! Love the dab of sourcream on top! I have a family of 5 with 2 extremely picky eaters and everyone went back for seconds!
This become a regular around my house!

Thanks
Carmen

My mom made this recipe and since my father in law works for Frito Lay when there are out of date (like a day or two really matters anyway) I try to make this recipe (If I can keep the hubby from opening and devouring the doritos first). :)

What is the serving size for Doritos Casserole?

Reply

Hi Heather, this dish is made in a 9X13 baking dish and can have a serving size as big or as small as you like. I usually cut it like I would a lasagna. I hope this helps!

What kind if Dorito's should I use? Nacho? Cooler Ranch? I know this probably sounds dumb…just wondering!! :)

They don't sell Nacho Cheese Soup here in Canada, what could I replace it with, so that the taste doesn't change? I think this recipe sounds great!

I am also from up north and I use a package of Old El Paso Nacho cheese powder and make it as directed on pack. Hope this helps. Good Luck !

Tostitos medium queso dip works well, too.

regular chedder cheese worked for me or you can also use cream of chicken, cream of celery, cream of mushroom, anything creamy but i used to use cream of celery and cream of mushroom but the cheddar cheese soup seems to be the best and I can't find the Nacho cheese soup here so I just use the cheddar cheese soup.

I used half of a bar of cream cheese, a large handful of fiesta blend shredded cheese, and a couple scoops of canned nacho cheese sauce (which is awful alone but turned out well when mixed with everything else.) It turned out great! Idk but I can't find the fiesta cheese soup anymore in stores. I think it might have been discontinued a lot of places.

Do you scrunch up the doritos first or just layer them whole?

Sheila, I scrunch up the doritos first and them put them on the casserole. Hope you enjoy it!

This is the one thing I can make in my house that makes all four kids happy and they all come back for seconds. Even the little 6 year old loves it. I, however, make it in two variations depending how they want it. I layer the pan with doritos, then the next layer is the meat, then pour the soup mixture (with dices chilis) on top of the meat, and then cheese for the last layer. If they want it really spicy I used the spicy doritos, use a spicy taco seasoning packet, and add diced jalapanos to the soup mixture and then use can also use spicy cheese for the top. I usually make one 9×13 spicy and one 9×13 not spicy and it is gone within two days and and there is only me and 4 kids eating it. Kids love it so much…I think it is because it has the doritos in it….

Nia, I've served this with all of the dishes you listed. To me it really just depends what I'm in the mood for and what I have in the pantry at the time! I hope you enjoy it!

Can I replace cream of mushroom with something else? My husband is allergic to mushrooms :-(((

Reply

Sunshine December 27, 2010 at 9:24 am

You could probably use cream of chicken and not notice a difference in taste! Let me know how it turns out if you try it!

Instead of nacho cheese soup can you use velveta cheese?

Reply

MakeLifeDelicious February 8, 2011 at 3:47 pm

Regina, I am not sure. I have never tried it! Let me know if you do though!

Reply

Jessica October 27, 2011 at 5:02 pm

Yes we use velveeta :)

Reply

holly July 27, 2011 at 4:06 pm

I also make this but I add Kidney beans

Reply

Jessica October 27, 2011 at 5:02 pm

This is what is in the oven right now :) I used 2 cream of chicken soups & some velveeta, 1 can corn, 1 can rotel, & 1.5 lbs of cubed seasoned chicken. Oh and used nacho cheese doritos & shredded cheese w/ sliced jalepenos on top :) What is great about this dish is you can tweak it to whatever ingredients you have around! My mom puts black beans & cream of mushroom in hers. A friend adds in mexican rice & spicy doritos in hers….everyone's is different! :)

I made this last night. I used the Tostitos queso dip as recommended someone, and it was delicious!!! I was hoping for leftovers tonight, but NOT!!! Will definitely make this again. Next time I may try chicken but my family wanted hamburger.

I just made this with ground chicken instead. I used hot and spicy taco seasoning and extra onion. I also added a can on black beans. So good !! Would be good with lettuce and sour cream
