Taco Casserole with a Surprise Crust

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: Taco Casserole with a Surprise Crust

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.
