Mom always made this as we were growing up. It never had a name - we just called it the "hamburger with beans and doritos stuff."

I've tried to refrain from posting too many casserole type dishes, but my self-control has abandoned me and it's casserole time, people!

So, here ya go: I am not afraid to say it - I love casseroles!!!!!!!!!

Ingredients

1 1/2 lb
ground beef, browned, drained
1-2 can(s)
ranch-style beans - mom always used 1 can; i like more beans and use 2
nacho cheese flavored doritos
1 1/2 c
shredded cheddar cheese
1 c
cooked rice, optional
sour cream and salsa, optional garnishments

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In large skillet, brown and drain ground beef. Return the beef to skillet, and add ranch style beans (do not drain the gravy from the beans - just open the can and pour them into the skillet). Let cook over low-medium heat, covered, stirring occasionally, until beans are warmed through, for about 10 minutes.
2
OPTIONAL STEP: Add cooked rice at the same time as beans and stir to disperse throughout.
3
Add about 2-3 handfuls of Doritos. No need to crush them - just add a handful, stir; add another handful, stir. Once Doritos are well combined throughout, cover and let simmer until Doritos are soft, for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4
Turn heat to low. Top with shredded cheese and cover. Once cheese melts, remove from heat and serve.
5
If desired, make sour cream, salsa or left over uncooked Doritos available for people to dress up their plates however they prefer.
