"Absolutely amazing dish! Everyone loved it and said it's definitely a keeper!"
"I've been making a recipe quite like this one for years. The difference is, I put a chopped onion in my ground beef and after it's done add a packet of taco seasoning mix and a 15oz can of refried beans. The tomatoes (I use Rotel) I mix with a small melted block of Velveeta cheese. I layer the slightly crushed Doritos in a bowl or casserole dish. Layer the ground beef mixture next. More Doritos. Then a layer of shredded lettuce and diced tomato. Then pour the hot melted Velveeta and Rotel tomatoes over the top and serve immediately. It's fabulous!"
"I want to try this! Ohh my, looks so good!"

I'll have to go on a search for Ranch Style beans, which is an actual brand, and not just a descriptive term. I did locate some copycat recipes which will be a help if I can't locate the actual product. There's a recipe provided in the comments following the recipe. This looks a bit like some of the tortilla chip, beef, and cheese casseroles I've had before, but with the addition of beans and some other spices. I'm going to experiment with this since it looks like it has the makings of a quite tasty dish.

This recipe looks sooo scrumpdillyicious! I grew up eating and love ranch style beans! Now that I'm older I have to watch my sodium intake and they have quite a bit of sodium in them. I can reduce the sodium by using my own low sodium cream of chicken soup and the no salt added RoTel tomatoes that I also grew up eating! Yes, this one looks like it'll be a keeper!

In response to the Editor's suggestion to cut and paste into a word document...........why the hassle and extra step? Why not just "fix" your site so a "printer friendly" version can be printed when a recipe is selected??? Nancy

Hi Nancy, Thanks for taking the time to comment. I'm sorry that it is a hassle to print the recipe. To answer your question, we have an agreement with bloggers where we do not post the full recipe on our site, as that is stealing their original content. You can go to the blogger's site through the link and print from there. Many bloggers have printer-friendly versions. Another option is to download any of our large variety of eCookbooks. These have full, printable recipes in a handy cookbook format. You can find a link to our full collection of eCookbooks at the top of this page on the brown bar, next to "Blog" and "Giveaways."

Printing a recipe on your site is such a hassle! I've wasted so much paper trying that I am giving up on your site. Why can't you just "fix" your site so that recipes can be printed like we print everything else??? No recipe is worth the trouble I've spent trying to get a recipe of yours printed. Too bad as I love trying new recipes. Nancy
