Try It Tuesday

Ah, Tuesday. The day when I share my Pinterest hits and misses.

Today’s Pinterest find is a mixture of hit and miss, a hiss or a mit, if you will.

I say its a combination because Huff the Hubs LURVED it and I just thought it was okay. I should point out that I was super stressed and it was crazy-hella hot so I wasn’t in the best of moods. Plus, I read the recipe wrong so I got upset with myself when I realized my screw up.

Anywhoo, today’s Try It features a staple from my junior high food pyramid: Doritos!

Doritos Original

Thanks, Jam Hands!


Here’s what you need:

  • 2 c. shredded cooked chicken (Totally screwed up this part)
  • 1 c. shredded cheese
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 can Ro-tel
  • 1/2 packet taco seasoning
  • Bag of Doritos

First, pre-heat your oven to 350*. Then, combine all ingredients (minus the Doritos) into a mixing bowl. (I didn’t read the recipe early enough to realize that I needed cooked, shredded chicken. Sigh. I used cubed, raw chicken breast. Bah.)

Can't you taste the salmonella?

Mix everything up well and then set aside. Get a casserole dish and spray it with Pam. Then, sprinkle crushed up Doritos on the bottom.

Then, add a little of the mixture and top with Doritos. Keep layering like this (lasagna-style) until you run out of mixture and Doritos. Sprinkle with cheese.

Pop it in the oven for about 35 minutes. Actually, it took mine 45 minutes because the chicken was taking FOREVER to cook thoroughly. Hence, the need to use cooked chicken. Anywhoo, nearly an hour later, I had this:

Like I said earlier, HtH LURVED it. I thought it was alright. It was a little too “Dorito-y” for me. I think if I make it again I will, of course used cooked chicken, but I think I’ll also add some rice and black beans to give it a little more added flavor.
