Netta’s Niche – Dorito Casserole

There’s a lot of recipes with this same name, but this one came from my Mother-in-Law. It’s a favorite around our house.

A well-used recipe printed in our family cookbook


(Comments in parentheses & italics are mine.)


2 cans cream of mushroom soup     (I use cream of celery cuz mushroom)

1 soup can of water

1 can Ro-tel tomatoes           (I use the Aldi brand)

1 pkg taco seasoning mix     (I just mix up my own w/chili powder, paprika, garlic, etc)

1 med onion, chopped

1 1/2 lbs lean hamburger

1 cup grated cheese

1 pkg Nacho Flavor Doritos      (I use Aldi brand for this, too)

Mix soup, water, tomatoes & seasoning mix until smooth; bring to a boil. Fry onion & hamburger until brown; drain. in a 9×13 pan, layer crushed nacho chips, then hamburger mixture, and then sauce; repeat layers.  (I never layer, I just mix it all together.) Top with cheese. Heat in a 350 degree oven till cheese melts. Serve with lettuce and tomato salad. (We serve it with a side of rice, too)



A few years ago, Chilly made some suggestions for a Chicken version of this recipe which I later created. You may enjoy that one, too!
