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!!!!!!!!!

How to Make Ranch Style Bean and Dorito Skillet Dinner

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.
