This one is for Christy B, who thinks a Dorito Casserole sounds interesting!!
I got this recipe from my dear old aunt decades ago. It’s fast, it’s easy and it doesn’t have many ingredients. This is how I wrote it down all those years ago:
Brown (cook) 2 lbs. ground beef and onion. Mix 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 can cream of chicken, 1 can evaporated milk, 1 can enchilada sauce. layer meant mixture and Doritos in sheet cake pan. Cook at 350° for 30-45 mins.
Not much detail huh? And obviously I wanted to make sure I knew what “brown” meant! LOL!!
So here are the details:
2 lbs. hamburger meat
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can condensed milk
1 can enchilada sauce
1 bag Doritos/Tostitos, plain or cheese/any tortilla chip
Brown the hamburger in a large skillet with chopped up onion, about 1/2 cup. Drain.
In the same skillet, add the soups, milk and enchilada sauce. I use mild enchilada sauce in a can that’s the same size as the soup cans. Stir well over very low heat.
In a 9×13 casserole dish, pour about 2 cups of the meat sauce and spread evenly. Over that add 3 hands full of crushed Doritos, more or less. Add the remaining meat sauce on top of the chips. Cover with foil and bake as directed.
That’s it. How much simpler could it be???
Oh, and cornbread is great with this too. And maybe a tossed salad?!
Tip for the Day: Turn the foil with the shiny side down and the dull side up and out. The casserole will heat faster! You’re welcome.
