How to Make Mexican Chicken Casserole with Tortilla Chips

This Mexican Chicken Casserole is super easy to make. Just mix all the ingredients together and layer with tortilla chips in a lightly greased 9x13-inch baking dish. Top the casserole with cheese and you are ready to bake.

I used some chopped rotisserie chicken (my secret weapon) and this was ready for the oven before it was preheated. WooHoo!! If you aren't buying rotisserie chickens at Costco or Sam's you are really missing out. They are my #1 timesaver for easy weeknight casseroles! I always have at least two pulled chickens in the freezer.

There is a little kick from a can of diced tomatoes and green chiles. If you are serving this to kids, just make sure to grab a can of the mild diced tomatoes and green chiles. You could even just use a can of diced tomatoes or leave them out all together.

Can I use Doritos in this Mexican Chicken Casserole?

Absolutely! You can use plain tortilla chips or Doritos. I think Cool Ranch Doritos might be good in this Mexican Chicken Casserole too. I have a serious weakness for Doritos, so I will take any opportunity to add them to dinner!

  1. Do the chips become soggy? I have had other casseroles that called for crushed chips and they are always so soggy.

    1. The chips weren't soggy. I mixed it up and immediately baked it.

  2. You can substitute torn strips of tortillas for the chips if you want to refrigerate it and bake it later. No soggy chips.

    1. I haven't tried adding instant rice. I would assume you would need more liquid.
