We had a rare sight today…rain…all evening long…which made it the perfect kind of day for a Chicken Dorito Casserole.  🙂

I made me a separate mini pan so I could add extra spice and more chicken than chips (still trying to really push the iron).  I ate it with an avocado.

It’s so simple and quick to make.

Doritos (or any kind / flavor of sturdy chip)

Chicken (any kind even a premade rotisserie one if you don’t have to worry about gluten)

Creamy Cheese Sauce  (pre gluten free that would have been a can of cream of chicken soup plus Velveeta)

Now I have to make my own Cream of Chicken type base:

1/4 cup of Cream

1 1/2 cup Chicken Broth

2 tbsp Corn Starch 

Salt, Pepper, Garlic and Onion Powder.

I thickened that then stirred in Velveeta (to taste).  Use any melt-y cheese you like.  Yes, I eat Velveeta and don’t care if y’all think that’s white trash.  😉 

Layer Doritos and Chicken.

Poor sauce over.

Bake at 350* about 15 – 20 minutes.

Sprinkle a small layer of grated cheese over and bake til brown and bubbly.

Quick and easy.  🙂

Perfect rainy day musical accompaniment?  Sinatra of course.  🙂

    • Thanks and you’re welcome, gfandme. 🙂

      You can really throw in any leftovers that work with your flavors…corn / veg / etc. Some of my family like to add broccoli but I think you’ve been reading me long enough to know that isn’t happening here. 😉
