Dorito Casserole

Another quickie Mexican casserole, this one from Carol's kitchen. I keep browned ground beef with chopped onions and garlic in my freezer all the time, so this is a dinner in minutes but it tastes like you've been slaving away! I can't wait to try this one with shredded chicken too!

1 bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos (My friend Erin has tried it with Fritos too!)
1 16-oz. Sour Cream
1 small jar of Salsa (about 2 cups)
Ground beef, browned, as much as desired
Shredded Cheese (Colby-Jack or Cheddar are great!)

Cut a tiny slit in the bag of chips to let the air out of it. Lay the chip bag on the counter and crush the chips completely into tiny pieces. Pour half the bag of chips into the bottom of a 9x13" baking pan. Next, layer the ground beef on the chips. Mix the salsa and sour cream and then, cover the meat with this mixture. (Next time I make it, I mix in a can of black beans and some frozen corn.) Cover with shredded cheese. Pour the remaining half of the bag of chips over the casserole and bake at 350 until it is heated through (about 20 minutes). Enjoy!

I have heard of this recipe but have yet to try it :) I looks great :)

I make the same recipe but I mix the salsa with the meat instead of with the sour cream and yes it's great with some corn or beans added to the meat.

And I forgot to say that I also add taco seasoning to the meat. Try it, it's very "Mexican". We usually eat this casserole with Mexican rice and guacamole.

I made this the other day and it was a big hit with my family. I did add the beans and corn along with some chopped green and red peppers...delicious. Thanks for sharing, it is now added to my cookbook.
