  • 1 pound ground beef or turkey
  • 1 package taco seasoning (I use low sodium)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups cheese , divided
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup salsa (medium or mild depending on preference)
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom or chicken soup (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1 bag of Doritos , any flavor (approx. 11oz)


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Brown the ground beef and mix in the taco seasoning according to package directions. Let cool slightly.
  3. In a bowl, mix together milk, 1 cup of cheese, sour cream, salsa & cream of mushroom soup. Stir in ground beef.
  4. Open the bag of Doritos and give them a slight crush. You want the pieces to be fairly large, not crumbs.
  5. In a 2qt. casserole dish, layer 1/3 Doritos, 1/2 of beef mixture, 1/3 Doritos, remaining 1/2 of beef mixture, remaining Doritos. Bake for 25 minutes, top with remaining 1 cup of cheese and bake an additional 15 minutes or until cheese is melted & bubbly.

  6. Someone made this for a dinner at church and it was wonderful! I plan to make it sometime.

  7. I have made a few varieties of this and it is awesome! Nacho cheese soup and another flavor of doritoes and yummy too! Watch out for the size of the chips… to small and they will get soggy:(

  8. what Size Dish Did You Use?

  9. Awesome! I always ask the family-What would you like for dinner? This recipe was so good that I can make weekly. Thanks-

  10. Made this tonight basically between my husband and two teenage sons I have no leftovers. This will be going in my recipe box.

  11. Crazy question.. But what type of cheese are you using? Any?

  12. How many people does this recipe feed? Lol

  13. OMG so good made it tonight!! Everyone loved it!!

  14. little heavy caloricaly, but we loved! My kids loved it which made it a keeper!

  15. Just made this. Any idea why the top chips burned? I followed all instructions.

  16. What size bag of chips? I find this recipe painfully short on specifics although most questions were eventually answered via comments left and answered. Thanks.

  17. Unfortunately I had a screaming 19 mo old as I was trying to put this together, and screwed up. I did 1/3 doritos, 1/3 meat mixture 3 times, and then topped with the cheese. Ugh. Here’s hoping it works out anyways…

  18. Just found this recipe last night and had to give it a try…and wow I’m glad I did! It almost tastes like a hot nacho cassarole! Its very filling but its a recipe I will be making again and again! Thanks!

  19. Can you or have you done this in a crockpot?
