Dorito Casserole...

this recipe was requested by Sam... Amanda was supposed to post it but she's busy so she asked me to... so here goes. Version 1 -
  • bag Nacho Cheese Doritoes
  • 14 oz. can Rotel
  • 1 lb. Velveeta cheese (cubed)
  • 1 lb chicken , shredded,(canned, cooked chicken breast) your choice
Mix: chicken, rotel and velveeta in a bowel. Pour into a 13 X 9 pan cover with the Doritoe chips. Bake 350* for 20 - 30 min. You just need to heat through, watch to make sure the chips don't burn too much.

Version 2 -
  • bag Habanero or Buffalo Ranch Doritoes
  • 14 oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 1 lb. chicken
  • 1 lb. Velveeta (cubed)
Mix same as the above. This version puts the spicy flavor in the chips instead of in the tomatoes. UPDATE: Amanda called and said you need to drain the tomatoes, but if the mixture seems a little thick you can add some milk to thin it out. Also she said she crunches up a few chips and puts them in the bottom of the baking dish before adding the chicken mixture.

Homemade Velveeta

1 1/2 cups very hot water

1/2 envelope unflavored gelatin 1 1/2 teaspoons
