Mexican Dorito Casserole

Despite making efforts toward a healthier lifestyle and diet, sometimes my craving for junk food gets the best of me. And sometimes, junk food is just what’s needed – comforting, delicious and best of all, easy to prepare.
I’ve made this recipe before with great results, but with the use of full-fat cheese, milk and sour cream. In order to make this more diet-friendly, I substituted low-fat shredded cheese and fat-free milk and sour cream. The taste wasn’t impacted, but thankfully, the calorie count was lowered enough to make this dish easier on my waistline. Even so, this isn’t something I could (or would) prepare on a regular basis – but it works perfectly for a night of couch surfing in front of the television.
A few notes:

  • You might be tempted to use fat-free cheese to lower the calorie count even further, but fat-free cheese pretty much refuses to melt. I used Weight Watchers Mexican blend 2% shredded cheese and it worked perfectly.
  • I used two cans of chicken to make this recipe even easier.
  • This dish doesn’t lend itself to leftovers. The Doritos, unfortunately, lose their crunch factor when reheated. So unless you like a soggy consistency, make sure you’ve got enough people to feed or prepare to throw away what isn’t eaten.
  • I like to eat my serving topped with a dollop of extra sour cream.

Mexican Dorito Casserole 
Source: Domestic Chicky

2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 cup 2% shredded cheese
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup fat-free milk
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1 can Rotel tomatoes (canned tomatoes with chilies)
1/2 packet taco seasoning (or more, to taste)
Bag of Doritos chips

Preheat oven to 350°. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except Doritos. In a greased two-quart baking dish, put a layer of crushed Doritos, then a layer of the chicken mixture. Repeat once more, ending with a layer of chicken mixture. Top with more shredded cheese (if desired), cover and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Serves four.

What kind of cheese did you use? Most of the times I use cow cheese but I heard that goat cheese is all the rage these days. Do you think it could work on this recipe?
