Last-of-the-Bag Dorito Bake

If you feel guilty tossing the remains at the bottom of a bag of tortilla chips - here is a tasty way to use them up.  We enjoy Doritos in Taco Salad during the summer, but there are always just a FEW left that are hard to throw out.  They make a great addition to this creamy, cheesy one-dish casserole.

Broken chips seem to be doomed to extinction around my house.  Not sure why - other than they are a lot more fun to crunch when they are full-size.  Broken chips make a nice base for this casserole.

You can use leftover corn-on-the-cob, or frozen, or drained canned corn.  Leftover cooked chicken is also great here, but you could also use cooked and drained ground beef.  You can see, it’s very versatile and accepting of most leftovers in many forms.

You’ll find that the hint of Mexican flavor is something most kids would enjoy.  It’s also fast to assemble and have on the table within about 30-45 minutes.  

Add a green salad and/or fruit, and you have a great meal in a hurry.
