This recipe was created after a couple of years of tweaking. I've successfully served it to people ranging in age from 6 to 60! My husband loves it so much that he insists I make it for him every week. It also keeps well as leftovers. One extra pound of ground chicken may be substituted for the ground pork.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling and cheeses are melted, about 30 minutes. Allow casserole to cool 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

This recipe deserves more than the low rating it's gotten so far. It's as bland or spicy as interesting or basic as you make it. This is the type recipe that is soooo flexible it's ridiculous!:D I sauteed some onion & garlic. Added about 3-4c leftover chicken 1 cream of chicken soup sour cream 1 can undrained rotel a cup of cheese half cup black olives some green onions... the dorito part was actually about half doritos & the other half bottomofthebag cheezits tortilla chips potato chips. Oh I added 1t spicy blackening seasoning. 'Fit in an 8x8 with more cheese then chips on top. Some black or pinto beans & corn would be a good addition. Jalapenos on top. 'Think you could skip the sour cream in it & just save that per serving. Tip: Watch the salt - meaning don't add any. Those chips add enough. This is quite filling too. I'm tempted to say it's "good teenage boy food"!:) A few days later: K said I can make it again.:O That's as close to a compliment as I usually get - especially for an entree. Wow.:D Read More

We found it a little bland. I added hot sauce and it was better. I don't think I'll make it again. Read More

This makes a simple weeknight meal. I made a couple minor tweaks to this recipe. I replaced the chicken with turkey. I browned that with two teaspoons of taco seasoning and added the diced green pepper to it as I browned the turkey. Beyond that the only change was to replace the tomatoes with two cans of Rotel and I used double the cheese the recipe called for. Would I make it again? ABSOLUTELY. Read More

Will definitely make again. The freeloaders requested smaller tomatoes and more cheese. Grownups went for more and saved the remainders from the less adventurous. Heads up a whole bag of Doritos will give you the 4 cups. Open bag let air out and go nuts crushing it. Read More

Lacking a good flavor need some spices added to the meat. Read More

I had significantly fewer ingredients on hand as I didn t plan to make this meal. I didn t use sour cream I didn t use ground chicken. I used spicy breakfast sausage and taco seasoning cooked that down with rotel added in the cream of chicken and then mixed in the chips and cheese. I only had pepper jack cheese and I used the spicy nacho Doritos. It s not bad but not quite the recipe on here. I like that this recipe is so basic the sky is the limit of how flavorful you want it to be. Use what you have and make it your own! Read More

It was amazing. The only thing that I think could make it even better is some texture like rice being added. Read More
