  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • 1 pound ground beef I use 90% lean

  • 1/2 cup onion finely diced

  • 1 packet taco seasoning

  • 1 1/2 cups salsa

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 2 cups shredded cheese I used cheddar and Monterey Jack

  • 4 cups Dorito chips I used nacho cheese flavor

  • 1/2 cup tomatoes diced

  • 1/4 cup green onions sliced

  • cooking spray

  • sour cream, cilantro and other taco toppings for serving optional


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 2-3 quart baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Add the beef and cook for 4-5 minutes or until just browned, breaking up the meat with a spatula.
  • Add the onion and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes or until onion is translucent.
  • Stir in the taco seasoning and red salsa. Simmer for 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the sour cream.
  • Lightly crush the Doritos. Spread 1/3 of the chips over the bottom of the prepared pan. Place 1/2 of the meat mixture on top of the chips, then add 1/3 of the cheese in an even layer.
  • Repeat the process with another 1/3 of the chips, the rest of the meat, and 1/3 of the cheese.
  • Add the remaining chips, then the final layer of cheese. Cover the baking dish with foil.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and starting to brown.
  • Sprinkle the tomatoes and green onions over the casserole, then serve. Top with additional taco flavorings such as sour cream, olives, etc. if desired.
