Doritos Taco Casserole is a taco casserole taken to the next level. Layer with your favorite Doritos and make it your own!
When I think of fall and winter I think of casseroles. In the traditional sense of the word, I am not really a fan of them. I think of casseroles as a few things thrown together in a pan, with frozen veggies, in a gravy type sauce, and then loaded up with cheese. Not exactly healthy, or that tasty.
I realize my definition is not really accurate, but what can you do? If I say we are having a casserole for dinner, my husband cringes as well. So I think it is time to reinvent the casserole, and make it something people look forward to!
We are big fans of Mexican food at our house, so it seemed like a good place to start. I am a member of a cooking club that meets one time each month. This year the theme is letters of the alphabet. Last month when we met, we were on “D,E,F”. So we had to bring a dish that started with one of those letters.
I was unsure what I was going to make until I walked into the grocery store and right at the front Doritos were on sale. Perfect! This casserole idea immediately popped into my head, and I knew it was meant to be.
I used ground turkey to make it a little bit healthier for you. But feel free to use ground beef or even ground chicken if that is what your family likes. You can even switch up the flavor of the chips. I am a Cool Ranch girl to the core, so that is what I used.
My family probably would have liked Nacho Cheese better, but when you don’t make dinner, you have to go with what the cook likes!

My family and the ladies at cooking club loved this quick and easy casserole. My 9 year old practically licked his plate clean! Top with your favorite taco toppings; lettuce, tomatoes, black olive, salsa, avocados etc.
Don't forget dessert! We suggest Rachael's super stuffed chocolate chip cookies to end the meal just right.
