Now, I am not one to place a lot of recipes on this blog because I am not a good cook and because my kids are so picky that our dinners have become dull and unadventurous lately (if I never have to eat Mac ‘N Cheese again, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world). However, there is one recipe that I use from time to time to make a fun dinner for the family and it’s actually one that EVERYONE, even my prissy pants daughter, likes – who knew that was even possible?!
I got this recipe from my mom and when she got it, it was called Mexican chicken, but I don’t really know why it’s called that (maybe because some of the ingredients are the same as those used in tacos?) so I am just going to call it Doritos chicken dip so as not to offend anyone and to entice you to read on because, frankly, who doesn’t like Doritos?!
If you use the original recipe that I like, it’s not exactly the healthiest thing in the world; but over the years, I have altered it slightly by using fat-free ingredients and baked Doritos and it’s very close to the original flavor. This can be a snack or, as it is pretty filling, made as a dinner – I highly recommend it for the Super Bowl. Enjoy!
Always check to make sure the chicken pieces are completely cooked before removing from the oven.
This is a very easy recipe to let the kids help you with as (other than the chicken dicing) as it basically just involves dumping everything into a bowl and crushing up Doritos. This explains why I am able to successfully bake this from scratch with my minimal chef skills.
So, try it out and let me know if you love it as much as we do!
