a long lost family recipe found…and DORITOS were the main ingredient?

My mom got a recipe from a neighbor 25 years ago that had Doritos and chicken and it was…WAIT FOR IT…. amazing!!!

Unfortunately, my mom lost the recipe (before the internet was booming) and we never had it again. Every couple of years I would Google Search, but couldn’t find it.  TODAY is the first day of the rest of my life.  I found it!
