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
  • 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

  • Heat oven to 350°F (180C). Spray a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Bake, uncovered, for about 25-30 minutes (or until hot and bubbly).
  • 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!
