There is one important thing to keep in mind when making a Dorito Casserole: moisture. Depending on whether the chicken and Rotel are drained, the casserole can be made drier or more moist to suit your taste—I usually don't drain either. The Doritos are the primary reason for the casserole's dryness, so be careful about using a larger size bag of chips: this will definitely affect the final product if more moisture isn't added! Another interesting feature of this caserole is that it works great with low sodium ingredients; using low sodium ingredients affects the flavor very little. However, I wouldn't use anything that was low fat, as this usually does affect the flavor. Other than that, I should just remind you not to not burn the cheese!

While Dorito Casserole is great on its own, it works very well with other Mexican dishes and condiments. I have found that sour cream and hot sauce are both great toppings for this casserole.



Dorito Casserole is one of the tastier casserole recipes I am aware of. I was introduced to it as a child and had it from time to time growing up. I still make it now that I am older, primarily for guests or festal occasions: it isn't a health food, but it is a quick, easy dish for a special event.


I got this recipe from my mother, but I'm not sure where she got it from; I don't think I've changed the proportions of the original recipe, only the formatting and directions. I have eaten it and/or used it most of my life, but didn't add it to my website until August 25, 2013. I haven't modified it since then.
