Mexican Casserole

My sister was telling me a story about how she heard on the news that the Dorito Loco Taco increased sales at Taco Bell by 435%. Talk about taco crazy. But let’s be honest, who doesn’t love Doritos. Do I buy like I did when I was a kid? No, not really. But when I saw this recipe for a Doritos Casserole, I knew I wanted to make it.

This recipe is from my Perfect 10 Cookbook. Author Debbie Kraft said she first tried it at her sister-in-law’s house. Debbie refused to leave until she had a copy of the recipe. I hope you enjoy it as well.

Doritos Casserole by Diane Krumm

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 c. onion
1 package of taco seasoning
1/2 tsp. salt
1 can of Cheedar Cheese soup
1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup
1 c. milk
1 can Ro-Tel tomatoes
1 medium bag of Nacho Doritos, crushed
1 1/2 c. Cheddar Cheese, grated

Brown hamburger with onions. Drain off grease. Add taco seasoning and salt. In a seperate bowl, combine soups, milk, and tomatoes and mix well. Grease a 2 qt. casserole dish. Layer Doritos, meat, and soup. Repeat one more time. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from over and sprinkle with cheese. Bake another 10-15 minutes til cheese is melted. If desired, garnish with sour cream and ripe olives.

Recipe modications:

  • I didn’t have onions so I made it without.
  • I was also out of Ro-Tel so I substituted diced tomatoes.
  • I wasn’t sure what a medium bag of Doritos was so I used have a super bag (from Sam’s Club). I think you might also be able to use Baked Doritos.
  • The soup mixture is pretty soupy. I think you can use Fat-Free or Reduced Sodium soups without messing up the recipe thickness.
  • I used skim milk and fat free shredded cheddar cheese.
