This casserole was DELICIOUS!!  And yes, it is okay to have Doritos for dinner once in a while, especially in this recipe!!  (Plus we topped it with lettuce & tomatoes, that’s got to count for something right?  ;) ).

This recipe has lean ground beef seasoned, cooked with salsa and mixed with sour cream for a delicious filling. In fact, the filling is SO good that it makes a great dip for tortilla chips or is the perfect filling to wrap in tortillas with your favorite taco toppings!

While I’ve used lean beef, if you prefer a chicken casserole, you can substitute 2 cups of chopped cooked chicken in place of the ground beef.  Black beans or even a can of refried beans make a great addition to the filling.  You’ll need a total of about 4 1/2 cups of slightly crushed Doritos so I use the family sized bag (Approx 17oz).  Any flavor works but I used the Nacho Cheese and it was delicious!
