Doritos Chicken/ The Foods and Flavors of San Antonio


Thanks to Gloria Chadwick and Pelican Publishing, I had the pleasure of receiving a review copy of Gloria's newest cookbook, The Foods and Flavors of San Antonio. As a fellow Texan, and a lover of San Antonio, I knew I would love the focus on Tex-Mex cuisine. This cookbook is amazing. It is full of a variety of chilis, casseroles, enchiladas, coffee drinks, tex-mex breakfast dishes, and more! I chose to make the Doritos Chicken, and it turned out fabulous. You can't go wrong with a dish that uses Doritos as a base. The cheesy Doritos blend perfectly with the chicken, peppers, onions, and tomatoes. It is all topped off with lots of melted cheese.
Doritos Chicken

1 12 oz package Doritos, crushed

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cooked and chopped

1 medium onion, chopped

1 red bell pepper, chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

1 15 0z. can Mexican stewed tomatoes

1/2 cup picante sauce
salt and black pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese


Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spray a 13 x 9" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle the crushed chips evenly over the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine the cooked chicken, onion, red bell pepper, garlic, tomatoes and picante sauce. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Pour the mixture over the crushed chips. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 40 minutes or until bubbly.

I used to love doritos...I wish they made a healthy vegan version.

THis reminds me of something my ex-boyfriend's mom used to make and he loved. Except his was with fritos instead of doritos.

I could eat a whole big bag of doritos myself. That is why I never buy them. This looks great.

That dish sounds heavenly! I have to agree - anything with doritos - I'm in! My uncle makes a Dorito salad and it's quite heavenly!

I think I could eat an entire chicken cooked like this. What a great combination. Doritos - Whoulda thunk?

I just went to San Antonio a couple weeks ago and tried Boudro's, a Texan bistro. It was pretty awesome but I found the food a bit too overseasoned. I really enjoy the Tex Mex flare of San Antonio though!

Jennifer said...

Doritos-sold!! Let's all make it and all use a different flavor.

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

OMG, I love Tex-Mex food! That Doritos dish looks extremely scrumptious!

Cheers,
