By far, one of the most requested dinners in my house is this Dorito Casserole recipe. This Dorito casserole is made with layers of mashed Dorito chips, ground beef, and a wi-gooey cheese sauce. Everything is baked together to get the melted cheese. Each bite contains the perfect amount of chips, cheese and meat! Dorito casserole recipe This layered Dorito casserole has delicious chunks of beef swimming in a creamy cheesy sauce, surrounded by chips that everyone loves! Are you hungry yet? And did I mention you can have it on the table in about 30 minutes? Easy to make and full of Mexican flavour, even the picky eater will love this! There’s nothing better than a hot cheesy casserole on a cold day. My kids are always very excited when they are on the menu. I don’t blame them, Doritos for dinner is always a good thing! If you like a little extra flavor, consider using a powdered can of meat taco seasoning. This is an optional step in case you don’t have a picky eater! Either way, it’s great! How to make a Dorito platter: Begin by placing half a large bag of red “party-size” Doritos cheese in the bottom of a large baking dish. 9″ x 13″ plate is awesome! Have you noticed how I grind the chips a little? You want to break some of the chips a little bit so that the large casserole fits all over the baking dish. This also prevents the chips from becoming pasty! Next, put half of the cheese-meat mixture on the foil. This delicious meat mixture is actually hot because you have precooked the ground beef and then combined it with the canned ingredients. I love when cooking is easy and everyone loves what I make 🙂 No tagine is complete without cheese! Add a layer of Mexican cheese on top of the meat. Finally, repeat filling the baking dish with the remaining chips (slightly mashed), the rest of the meat, and more cheese. Tips for making the best Dorito casserole: Crush the potato chips lightly, but not into small pieces. I use 90% lean ground beef – it has a lot of flavor but isn’t overly greasy. You can use any flavor you like Doritos! I’m using Mexican-style cheese for this casserole – other great options would be a mix of cheddar cheese and jack cheese or pepper cheese. You can decorate the casserole with a variety of toppings. I usually serve the Dorito casserole with sour cream, diced tomatoes, and green onions. Other great options are chopped cilantro, olives, and avocado. Cheese melts in a delicious meat sauce to create sticky bubbles! After they are baked in the oven, they are cooked with diced tomatoes, green onions and sour cream. Of course, you can add other layers or get rid of things you know your kids won’t be willing to try.
