My version of King Ranch Casserole – this quick yummy casserole is a big hit and my kids had a great time when they were little crushing up the chips for the layers.


  • 2 Cups Shredded Cooked Chicken I’ve used Canned Chicken in a pinch!
  • 1 can Cream of Chicken soup
  • ½ Cup milk
  • ½ Cup sour cream
  • 1 can Ro-tel tomatoes canned tomatoes with jalepenos-mild
  • ½ packet taco seasoning or more- to taste
  • 1/2 bag of Doritos Chips (we usually use nacho Flavor)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350-f degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients.
  3. In a greased 2 qt baking dish, put a layer of crushed doritos (about 2 cups), then a layer of the chicken mixture.
  4. Repeat once more, ending with a layer of chicken mixture.
  5. Top with more shredded cheese, cover, and bake for 30-35 minutes, till bubbling hot.
  6. You can add other items to this, depending on your preferences, like olives, green chiles, onions, etc…
  7. PS – The chicken mixture would also makes a great enchilada or burrito filling!
