This was wonderful and sooo easy!!! The entire pan was eaten up. I added a little extra salsa (I used 1 1/2 cups), extra chicken (I also added ADOBO to my chicken while it was boiling) , a small can of sliced mushrooms, and some cooked rice. The rice gave it some substance so it wasn't "dippy" I mixed everything together instead of layering it, except for the cheese, which I put on top. I also waited until the last five minutes of cook time and put the crushed doritos on top (so they didn't burn) instead of layering them on the bottom.. I will surely be making this again. It was a big hit! Thanks!!!

Nachos on Steroids! This was VERY good said all 4 of us. I did mostly to recipe and I never thot a whole bag of Doritos could be so good. I did not even tell my family that I was putting those in until every one had tasted (and loved!) it. I could not find 16 oz at corner store so i used 10 oz nacho flavor & 3 oz bag of taco flavor. As you can see in the pics, I did not have any soupiness at all. In fact, I thot it could have used a little more. I think i will add 1/3-1/2 C of stock next time.**Sidenote: I had cooked 8 thighs in crockpot yesterday and deboned. I mix in about 2/3 Taco seasoning pkt to let meat marinade overnight ** I added 1/2 chopped onion, 1/5 red bell pepper, 10-12 chopped black olives and about 2/3 can corn drained in 2 layers in between chicken and soup layers. I had 8 oz bag of mexi cheese but then only 1/2 bag of Italian cheese. Oh, all soups, corn, taco seasoning was all low sodium. I think it is one you can really play around with and it would still be tasty. Thanks for a recipe that I would have never thot of. Its a keeper!

I prepared this for a group of ten coworkers. The event was a Mexican theme so the Mexican Casserole was perfect. At least three people asked me for the recipe before the night was over,
