Doritos x 4

Yes, this is another Doritos recipe. Apparently, I have so many on my blog that my coworkers bought Doritos to celebrate my b-day. But I have to tell you, it is my favorite of the casserole versions I’ve made. You can’t go wrong with crescent rolls as a base.

Doritos_Crescent BakeTaco Bake from Pinterest
1 lb. hamburger
1 package of taco seasoning
8 oz. sour cream
1 package of crescent rolls
1 (8 oz.) can of tomato sauce
1 c. diced tomatoes (optional)
1 c. shredded cheese
¾ package of crushed Doritos

Brown hamburger and drain. Add taco seasoning, tomato sauce, and tomatoes. Bring to a simmer. Line a 13 x 9 pan with crescent rolls. Top with hamburger mixture, sour cream, cheese, and Doritos. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.


  • I used Wildtree taco seasoning.
  • I used reduced fat crescent rolls, fat free sour cream, no-salt added tomato sauce, and 2% cheese. You could use 93% fat-free ground beef or ground turkey to make it healthier.
  • I accidently add the whole can of Red Gold diced tomatoes (14.5 oz.). It still turned out fine.
  • I used a ½ bag of Doritos and it was more than enough. Another option would be to use Baked Doritos.
  • I baked the crescents for 7 minutes before adding ingredients. I do this to prevent a doughy crust.

Doritos Crusted Chicken Fingers

I like to buy Doritos occasionally when they are on sale to bake new recipes. This one is a great alternative to fried chicken. Quick, delicious, and healthier.

4 chicken breast, cut into slices
1 bag of Doritos
2 c. buttermilk
2 c. flour
1 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)
4 eggs

Place chicken in a gallon sized baggie and add buttermilk. Refrigerate for two hours. Food process Doritos. Place crushed Doritos in a shallow dish. In another dish, whisk eggs. In a third dish, pour flour and cayenne pepper. Line up dishes in this order: chicken, flour, eggs, and Doritos. Take chicken through each dish coating both sides. Place on a foil lined baking sheet. Cook at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, turning halfway through.


  • I halved the recipe. I used probably about 1/4 to 1/3 of the bag of Doritos. It was just perfect for five chicken tenderloins.
  • I didn’t have time to coat the chicken after work so I put it in the bag of buttermilk to soak while I was at work. Great time saver.
  • I cooked for 20 minutes.
  • Cut calories by using egg substitute. Not sure how it would cook with Baked Doritos but I bet it would work too.

Doritos Casserole

If you have followed my blog since the beginning, then you may have seen another Doritos recipe. This recipe is a little different and uses chicken instead of ground beef. I also made it a little healthier with some simple substitutions.

Doritos Chicken CasseroleDoritos Casserole from Pinterest
3 c. cooked chicken, diced
8 oz. sour cream
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 c. salsa
2 c. cheddar cheese
a bag of Doritos

Crumble Doritos and sprinkle of the bottle of a lightly greased 13 x 9 pan. In a bowl, mix chicken, sour cream, salsa, soup, and a cup of cheese. Pour over Doritos. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cover with remaining cup of cheese and bake an additional 5 minutes.


  • I halved the recipe and baked it in my bubble and brown dish.
  • I grilled boneless, skinless chicken breast. Rotisserie chicken would have also been good.
  • I used fat free sour cream. You could substitute non-fat Greek yogurt.
  • I used the healthy choice Cream of Chicken Campbell’s soup. You could also use the fat free version.
  • I made my salsa using Wildtree Fiesta Salsa mix and a can of reduced sodium diced tomatoes. You could also use a can of Rotel or fresh tomatoes.
  • You could use Baked Doritos for the base of this recipe.
  • I used 2% cheddar cheese for the topping and fat free cheddar cheese in the chicken mixture.
  • A Mexi-corn mixture or black beans would make a great veggie addition.

Mexican Casserole

My sister was telling me a story about how she heard on the news that the Dorito Loco Taco increased sales at Taco Bell by 435%. Talk about taco crazy. But let’s be honest, who doesn’t love Doritos. Do I buy like I did when I was a kid? No, not really. But when I saw this recipe for a Doritos Casserole, I knew I wanted to make it.

This recipe is from my Perfect 10 Cookbook. Author Debbie Kraft said she first tried it at her sister-in-law’s house. Debbie refused to leave until she had a copy of the recipe. I hope you enjoy it as well.

Doritos Casserole by Diane Krumm

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 c. onion
1 package of taco seasoning
1/2 tsp. salt
1 can of Cheedar Cheese soup
1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup
1 c. milk
1 can Ro-Tel tomatoes
1 medium bag of Nacho Doritos, crushed
1 1/2 c. Cheddar Cheese, grated

Brown hamburger with onions. Drain off grease. Add taco seasoning and salt. In a seperate bowl, combine soups, milk, and tomatoes and mix well. Grease a 2 qt. casserole dish. Layer Doritos, meat, and soup. Repeat one more time. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from over and sprinkle with cheese. Bake another 10-15 minutes til cheese is melted. If desired, garnish with sour cream and ripe olives.

Recipe modications:

  • I didn’t have onions so I made it without.
  • I was also out of Ro-Tel so I substituted diced tomatoes.
  • I wasn’t sure what a medium bag of Doritos was so I used have a super bag (from Sam’s Club). I think you might also be able to use Baked Doritos.
  • The soup mixture is pretty soupy. I think you can use Fat-Free or Reduced Sodium soups without messing up the recipe thickness.
  • I used skim milk and fat free shredded cheddar cheese.
