Very good! Could also be a dip! Definitely would make again! I used 4 cheese Mexican....really turned out wonderful...thanks for the recipe, Sarah! I also used fresh chiles, but use what you have on hand.


I thought this recipe was a good baseline recipe. I did however make some modification based on what I had on hand. I used plain tortilla chips in place of the Doritos, added chopped sweet bell peppers to the onion step and substituted taco seasoning for the chili powder and ground cumin. I also used leftover Rotisserie chicken. I layered crushed chips, chicken/soup mixture, shredded cheese twice ending with shredded cheese on top. It tasted even better for leftovers the next day!


This was delicious. I highly recommend this.
