Dorito® Casserole

Recipe by  

"Got this recipe from a friend WAY back in junior high. Super simple and tastes delicious. My kids ask for it all the time. If you love enchiladas, you'll love this recipe. You can use any flavor Doritos® to suit your tastes. When reheating leftover casserole, stir in a little bit of milk to make it creamy again."

I used plain doritos since the recipe said any flavor. It was very easy, and I made it for a friend's family since she is in the hospital. I also made an extra one for my family to freeze. I used shredded cheddar instead of cheese slices since that's what I had on hand. It looks great, but since one is going to another family, and the other is going in the freezer, I haven't had a chance to taste it. It looks and smells marvelous though!

This is OK. It is fast and easy, and all of the ingredients are usually things I have on hand. Next time, I will add a can if diced tomatoes, and some onion with the ground beef/turkey.

My family loves this recipe. I use cream of mushroom soup instead of the cream of chicken. I also add a small can of diced chilis to the meat mixture. My kids ask for this all the time!

My teenagers absolutely loved this! I tried a bite, and it was good, but it isn't friendly for my diet. My kids said I should make it often, and actually asked for it again a week later. They also asked if there were any leftovers, which there weren't, as they ate the whole thing the first day. It was very easy to make, especially on a busy weeknight.

Put shredded cheese on top instead of slices.

I like this recipe it reminds me of one my mom made all the time only instead of the cream soup and milk she used evaporated milk. The reason being that it added the creamy texture and thickening qualities without the added chicken or mushroom flavor. We always used nacho cheese Doritos too. It is really good that way. She always served it topped with diced tomatoes/onions and sour cream. Over the years I changed it a bit by adding a can of refried beans to the mix and using cheddar cheese when I did not have velveeta. Also I guess because of the evaporated milk we always cooked it for about 20 minutes and then added more cheese on top for about 5 more.

It was just ok. I used ground turkey and cooked that with my homemade taco seasoning. I followed the rest of the recipe except I used shredded the cheese on top. The flavor was good but it needed a crunch. I think I will try it again but bake the doritos on top.

I used an 11 Oz bag of Doritos and still thought it was too much. I also used a yummy Mexican shredded cheese blend. My kids thought it was okay but pretty bland. I agree. If I were ever to make this again (unlikely), I would use fewer chips, more burger mixture and top with lettuce, tomato, and sour cream, as a previous reviewer suggested. I would also consider wrapping it in a tortilla.
