Cheesy Dorito Chicken Casserole

Cheesy Dorito Chicken Casserole is full of chopped chicken, black beans, Rotel tomatoes, and cheese with lots of crunch from crushed Dorito chips. One of my very favorite Mexican casseroles!

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, cut into chunks
  • 4 cups cooked and shredded chicken, I use a rotisserie chicken
  • 2 (10.75-ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 2 (10-ounce) cans Rotel tomatoes
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 tablespoon Chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 regular size bag nacho Dorito chips
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add onion and cook until soft.
  • Add cream cheese,chicken, soup, tomatoes, black beans, chili powder, and cumin.
  • Stir until cream cheese is melted and everything is blended together.
  • Add 1/3 of Doritos into a lightly greased 9x13-inch baking dish. Pour 1/2 of chicken mixture on top and spread it evenly. 
  • Top with 1/2 the shredded cheese and then remaining chicken mixture.
  • Finish off with remaining Dorito chips and shredded cheese. Bake for 30 minutes and serve.


Use mild Rotel tomatoes if you don't want t spicy. Regular Rotel plus the chili powder gives it a fair amount of kick. Use hot Rotel if you want it really spicy.
