I think everyone in the world must love Doritos! I could open a bag, and devour the entire bag, in one sitting. This is a great, cheesy casserole that your entire family will love, made with Doritos! This particular recipe is made with Ground Beef, but I will also post a similar recipe, made with chicken. Enjoy!

 1 lb. Ground Beef
1 package Taco seasoning
*I use half the pkg…but the recipe calls for the entire pkg
 1 small onion, chopped
 1 can Rotel
*Rotel has several flavor varieties, choose your favorite
 1 can Campbell’s Fiesta or plain Nacho Cheese Soup
 1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
 1 bag of Doritos, crushed
 1 8 0z bag of shredded cheese
Sour cream and salsa for topping (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown ground beef and onion and drain well. Add taco seasoning and cook as directed on package In a 9 X 13 casserole dish, layer bottom of dish with 1/2 bag of Doritos. Set other half aside. In large bowl, combine taco seasoning beef and onion mixture, Rotel, Nacho Cheese Soup and Cream of Mushroom Soup. Mix well. Top layer of Doritos with beef mixture. Top with grated cheese. Bake until cheese is melted (approx. 20 to 25 minutes).

Crush the other half of Doritos on top of the melted cheese. This is also great served with shredded lettuce, and tomatoes as well.

      Hi Marti,
      I haven’t frozen either of these recipes, but I’m sure they would freeze just fine.
      Maybe leave the Doritos off until you serve it.

    With the Rotel do you use the paste or the one with the diced tomato?ReplyCancel
