Tips and Tricks

  • I love using a rotisserie chicken because it makes prepping this meal even easier. You can also precook your own chicken if you would like. 
  • Not a fan of black beans? You can omit the black beans if choose or swap them out for a pinto bean. 
  • Rotel at times is a little spicy to kids, if your kids say it is spicy you can substitute your Rotel for canned tomatoes.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    How to store leftover Dorito Chicken Casserole

    This Dorito casserole will store nicely in the fridge for up to 4 days in an airtight container. 

    Can you Freeze Chicken Casserole?

    I am super impressed with how well this dish freezes. When served in an airtight container it can last up to 6 months. When you are ready to serve, place in the fridge overnight and reheat in the oven. Top with additional chips to add a little more crunch! 

    What can I serve with this casserole?

    This casserole is very filling on its own and requires no sides. On occasion, I will pair it with a side salad. 
    You can also use this casserole to serve over rice or a baked potato. I will do this with my leftovers quite often!
