Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly spray a 9x13-inch dish with cooking spray.
Dice the cooked chicken breasts.
In a saucepan over medium heat, mix the soups, onion, tomatoes, Cheez Whiz, Tabasco and Worcestershire Sauce until blended. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Line the bottom of a casserole dish with the crushed tortilla chips. Place the chicken on top and pour over some of the mixture. Add a layer of half the Cheddar. Repeat the process, topping with Cheddar and mozzarella.
Bake for 35-45 minutes, until bubbly.
I like to use rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken in this recipe.
Can use any combination of cream of soup in this recipe.
You can prepare the casserole and refrigerate it overnight.
You can prepare the casserole and freeze it for later. To bake after freezing, thaw completely and bake as directed.
If you are worried about the tortilla chips getting soggy, I suggest making the casserole sauce in advance and assembling the casserole while the oven preheats. The sauce will keep several days in the refrigerator. You can also freeze the chicken and sauce.
I used plain tortilla chips. Feel free to use Doritos or any other flavored tortilla chip you enjoy.
