Imagine how happy my kids were when they realized that I was serving their favorite chips for dinner?! While this isn’t a common occurrence, it’s a nice change of pace every once in awhile! The Doritos take the place of a traditional taco shell or soft flour tortilla and add so much zesty flavor to the dish. Plus, the first layer of chips forms a great little crust at the bottom of the taco bake. So, so good!

An easy twist on Mexican food for dinner, this Doritos Nacho Cheese Taco Bake is a fun casserole that will make your family smile! Lean ground taco meat and veggies are topped with shredded cheese and crumbled Doritos tortilla chips for a delicious, flavorful, and simple one dish meal!

Ingredients

  • 1 (9.75 ounce) bag Nacho Cheese flavored Doritos, coarsely crushed (about 4 cups crushed)

  • 1 lb. lean ground beef

  • 1 (1 ounce) packet taco seasoning mix

  • 2/3 cup water

  • 1 red bell pepper, diced

  • 2 ½ cups salsa or taco sauce

  • 1 (15 ounce) can corn, drained

  • 2 cups shredded Mexican-blend or Cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

  2. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat until no longer pink (about 5 to 7 minutes). Drain. Return beef to skillet and stir in taco seasoning mix, water and bell pepper. Simmer until thickened (about 3 to 4 minutes), stirring frequently. Stir in salsa and corn.

  3. Place half of the crushed Doritos in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with half of the cheese. Spread beef mixture on top.

  4. Bake, uncovered, for about 25-30 minutes (or until hot and bubbly).

  5. Sprinkle top of the casserole with remaining crushed Doritos and remaining shredded cheese. Put the dish back in the oven for about 5 more minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

Notes

Cooking for a Smaller Family? You can easily cut the ingredients in half and bake the casserole in an 8-inch square dish.

Want to Prep Ahead? I often cook the beef mixture in advance and keep it in the refrigerator for a few days until I’m ready to assemble the casserole!
