Cooking Time25 min

Cooking Vessel Size9 x 13-inch baking dish


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 (10-ounce) can cheese soup
  • 1 (10-ounce) can tomatoes with green chiles
  • 1 (10-1/2-ounce) bag Doritos chips, Nacho Cheese flavor
  • 3 cups Mexican blend shredded cheese
  • sour cream and salsa for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with vegetable spray.

  2. In a large, deep, non-stick skillet, brown the meat with the onion and taco seasoning until the meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes, breaking up the meat with the back of a spoon. Add the soup and tomatoes to the pan and stir until blended.

  3. Use your hands to crush the chips slightly. Place about 1/3 of the crushed chips into the bottom of the pan, then spoon of the meat mixture over the chips. Top with 1 cup of the cheese, spreading evenly in the dish.

  4. Layer another 1/3 of the chips, the rest of the meat, and another cup of the cheese.

  5. Top with a final layer of the chips and top with the final cup of cheese.

  6. Bake for 25 minutes. Serve with sour cream and salsa on the side for topping each serving.

The History of Doritos

Over the years, Doritos have become a staple of America's snack time. Not only are the crunchy corn chips eaten between meals, but they're also used in recipes such as this Ground Beef Doritos Casserole. But have you ever wondered where these tasty orange chips came from?

Archibald "Arch" West, a marketing executive for Frito-Lay, is credited with inventing Doritos. Some say that West was inspired to create the chips after visiting a Disneyland restaurant. The more probable origin story, though, is that in the 1960s West and his family stopped at a roadside eatery in California where he saw the cooks making fried corn chips. Inspired by what he saw, West pitched the idea for Doritos to Frito-Lay, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Doritos is known for its neon orange nacho-flavored variety, but the original chips had no flavor "dusting" on them at all. The name is purportedly derived from the diminutive forms of the Spanish words oro or dorado, which mean "gold" and "golden," respectively.

I enjoy Mexican food and this is definitely worth a try. I've seen the Taco flavored Doritos reappear in stores after a long absence and I'd like to give those a try in place of the Nacho Cheese ones. I'm also curious about giving this a try with the guacamole chips that are readily available nowadays. I would use the lower sodium taco seasoning since there's a decent amount of salt in the cheese soup.

Is there supposed to be a "print" button somewhere?

I'm sure this tastes really good, but I kind of dislike the idea of using Doritos in a casserole. They're so processed that they take away some of the rustic, homemade feel, you know?
