Ingredient Notes and Variations

Nacho cheese Doritos: They provide a signature crunch and bold flavors to the casserole. For a twist, you can experiment with other Doritos flavors like spicy nacho or cool ranch.

Black beans: These beans are rich in fiber and protein. They give a hearty texture to the casseroles and make them more nutritious. You can use kidney beans or pinto beans as a substitute.

Mexican blend cheese: It brings a melty, gooey richness to the dish. You can use cheddar, Monterey Jack, or more for a different flavor profile.

Condensed cream of chicken soup: This creamy soup serves as a creamy base for the casserole. It not only adds richness but also helps to bind the ingredients. You can use condensed cheddar cheese soup or cream of chicken as an alternative.
