I made dinner this week for a dear friend who had surgery. I actually made two of these so that my boys could try it too because I knew that they would love this and they did! The recipe comes from a blog called “Cents Less”. It was easy, quick and yummy which, as we know, are my three favorite things in a recipe. I also made the “One Pot Mexican Rice Casserole” to go with it. I will definitely be making this one again. Here is a look at a serving so you can see all the yumminess under the toppings:
1 pound hamburger
1 packet taco seasoning (I also added 1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed)
2 cups nacho cheese Doritos, crushed
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup salsa
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
2 cups shredded lettuce
2 medium tomatoes, diced
1 Grease 9 x 13″ pan and spread crushed Doritos on bottom of pan.
2 Cook hamburger and taco seasoning until done. (Then I added the can of pinto beans.)
3 Spoon hamburger over the Doritos.
4 Beat cream cheese then slowly add salsa until well combined.
5 Spread cream cheese mixture over hamburger.
6 Top cream cheese with 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese.
7 Top cheese with lettuce and then tomatoes and then remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
8 Bake at 350 for 10 – 15 minutes or until cheese on top is melted.
