Dorito casserole is a flavorful and comforting dish that combines layers of seasoned ground beef, cheese, salsa, and crunchy Doritos chips. Here’s a simple recipe to make Dorito casserole at home:


  • – 1 pound ground beef
  • – 1 small onion, diced
  • – 1 packet (1 ounce) taco seasoning mix
  • – 1 cup salsa
  • – 1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained
  • – 1 can (10.75 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup
  • – 1/2 cup sour cream
  • – 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • – 3 cups crushed Doritos chips (Nacho Cheese flavor)
  • – Optional toppings: chopped fresh cilantro, sliced jalapeños, diced
  • tomatoes, sour cream, avocado slices


1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray or butter.

2. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef and diced onion over medium heat until the beef is browned and the onion is softened. Drain any excess fat from the skillet.

3. Stir in the taco seasoning mix, salsa, and diced tomatoes with green chilies. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is heated through.

4. In a separate bowl, mix together the condensed cream of chicken soup and sour cream until well combined.

5. Spread half of the crushed Doritos chips in an even layer on the bottom of the prepared baking dish.

6. Spread half of the ground beef mixture over the layer of Doritos chips.

7. Spread half of the soup and sour cream mixture over the ground beef layer.

8. Sprinkle half of the shredded cheese over the soup and sour cream layer.

9. Repeat the layers: crushed Doritos chips, ground beef mixture, soup and sour cream mixture, and shredded cheese.

10. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the casserole is heated through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

11. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown and slightly crispy.

12. Remove the casserole from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.

13. Garnish the Dorito casserole with optional toppings such as chopped fresh cilantro, sliced jalapeños, diced tomatoes, sour cream, or avocado slices.

14. Serve the Dorito casserole hot and enjoy the deliciously cheesy and crunchy layers!
