How do you reheat Dorito casserole?

To reheat Dorito casserole, preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a baking dish with cooking spray and spoon in the Dorito casserole. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the casserole is heated through.


3 c. shredded cooked chicken
2 c. shredded Mexican cheese blend (divided)
1 (10 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. sour cream
1 (10 oz.) can Ro-Tel diced tomatoes with green chilies drained
1 T. taco seasoning mix
1 lg. bag Doritos your choice (I use nacho cheese)
Chopped lettuce for garnish
Diced tomato for garnish


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together the shredded chicken, 1 cup of cheese, cream of chicken soup, milk, sour cream, Ro-Tel tomatoes, and taco seasoning mix. Stir well.
Grease a 2-quart casserole dish. Layer half of the crushed Doritos across the bottom of the dish. Top with half of the chicken mixture. Add another layer of crushed Doritos, and then add another layer of the chicken mixture. Top with remaining 1 cup cheese.
Cover and bake for 30-35 minutes, until bubbling hot. Remove from the oven and top with chopped lettuce, diced tomato and more crushed Doritos.
