Dorito Chicken and Spicy Southwestern Potatoes
1 bag Nacho Cheese (or Cool Ranch) Doritos
3 eggs, beaten
4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Preheat oven to 375°. Lightly coat a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Using a food processor (or a ziploc baggie and a rolling pin) crush the Doritos into small pieces. Dredge the chicken through the egg mix, then press into the crushed chips, coating both sides completely. Place on the cookie sheet. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes.

Spicy Southwestern Potatoes
1 box Au Gratin potaoes (any brand will do)
2 T butter or margarine
½ c milk
¼ c taco sauce (I used Cholula hot sauce, but you can use salsa or regular taco sauce, too)
1¾ c water
Toppings: Sour cream, green onions, black olives, cheddar cheese
In an 8-10" skillet, mix the potatoes and sauce mix with the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil, then cover and lower the heat to medium. Simmer for 10-12 minutes. Turn off the heat and uncover. The sauce will thicken upon standing. Serve with optional toppings.
