  • 1 lb
    hamburger meat
  • 1 can(s)
    cream of mushroom soup (10 oz)
  • 1 can(s)
    cream of chicken soup (10 oz)
  • 2 can(s)
    rotel (10 oz)
  • 1 can(s)
    pet milk (12 oz)
  • 1 can(s)
    black olives (optional) (12 oz)
  • 1 pkg
    mexican or cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 pkg
  • ·
    top with shredded lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream if desired



  1. Brown hamburger meat and drain. (I always add onion flakes to my hamburger meat as I am browning it.)
  2. In medium sized pot add soups, milk, and Rotel. Heat but do not let boil.
  3. Place a layer of Doritos in the bottom of a rectangular pan. Top chips with some of the meat, then the soup mixture, then cheese. Layer until meat and soup mixture is gone. (Around 3 layers).
  4. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in oven at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. Take out of oven top with cheese (and sliced black olives & jalapenos if desired) and place back in oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is completely melted.
  5. If you like your food really spicy use HOT ROTEL and top with Jalapenos either before or after baking for the last 10 minutes.
    Serve and enjoy!
