in the kitchen- taco casserole

Pin It

it's no secret- i'm not a cook.  it's not my favorite thing to do, but boys like to eat, and my mama's taco casserole is one of their favorites.  it's also known around here as dorito casserole.  i've seen many other recipes for "dorito casserole", but none hold a candle to my mama's.  mama wasn't much on cooking either, but i managed to snag a couple favorites from her.  and who doesn't love a gooey, cheesy casserole?

1 lb ground beef
1 can cream corn
1 can kidney beans
1 pkg taco seasoning
shredded cheese

brown ground beef and drain grease off.  add taco seasoning and 2/3 c water and simmer for 2-3 minutes.

add cream corn and kidney beans.

put a layer of crumbled doritos in the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish.

pour mixture on top of doritos and add as much shredded cheese as your family can hold.  bake for 20 minutes at 450. 

remove from oven and add more crumbled doritos on top.  bake for an additional 5 minutes.

serve with a side guessed it....doritos!
watch family devour.

happy cooking! :)
