I made this one up when I was tired of the same old Enchilada Casserole, I thought it was alright, but my husband LOVED it. This makes a huge batch, so if you're a family of four, I would just make it in 2 9x9 baking dishes and freeze the other one.

This was really good, I didn't have exact ingredients so I subsituted but basically I was really close. I only had a 10 ounce can of enchilada sauce so I added a 10 ounce can of Rotel tomatoes with the sauce. I used Zesty Ranch Dressing and Refried black beans(all I had). It came out more like a dip than a casserole but with the added tortilla shells and putting it on a bed of Doritos it was perfect. Thank you!

Ok -- here is what happened -- I saw this recipe and thought -- does not sound like I will love it, but DH most likely will (I don't like mexican chicken ANYTHING). He saw the recipe and thought, I really don't think I will like this... but I will give it a try. So last night, I made this casserole with a few slight changes -- I did not have ranch dressing mix (oops forgot it) so I added about 1/4 cup of lite ranch dressing to chicken mixture, I poached the chicken in a mixture of water and chicken broth with a pinch of salt and 3 hearty shakes of both cumin and cayenne pepper, and after the first layer of chicken mixture I added a thin coating (about 5 light shakes) of cayenne pepper (we LOVE spicy) and I added cheese on top before the crushed doritos. Sounds like a lot, but really very minor additions/subs and nothing that would change to overall taste. So, next thing I know, it smelled great coming out of the oven and it rocked our worlds -- this was so darn good! We ate a whole 9x9 pan just the two of us (froze another) there was one serving left and we fought over it for lunch today! Next time we are planning a mixture of ranch and spicy nacho cheese doritos! I can't wait to have this again!!! [Made for Potluck Tag]
