Excellent and easy. I didn't have plain Doritos, so I used plain tortilla chips. I also tossed in some olives with the sauce. Actually, I was eating some Nacho Cheese Doritos and wondering what to fix for dinner when I remembered this recipie. DH liked it and had two huge platesfull. Too easy and the ingredients are usually in the pantry.

This was a nice recipe. It was pretty easy to assemble. The nacho flavored tortilla chips we used made it a bit too spicy for the kids (combined with the Rotel tomatoes). I topped mine with sour cream to cancel some of the "heat." I did find some gaping holes in the recipe once I started making it. For example, were we supposed to use standard (10.75 ounce) or larger cans of mushroom soup? (I think 10.75 ounce cans were the right size.) Second, were we supposed to drain the tomatoes? I did not. How big of a bag of Doritos did you use? We had a jumbo bag and did not use all of it. A single-serving bag would be too small. What size was intended? Lastly, what size casserole dish would you suggest? I used a 9 x 13 glass casserole and had no problem. I used the single cup of cheese, but it was too sparse for my casserole size, so the cheese turned brown, as did the Doritos style chips that were not hidden under cheese. I would double or even triple the cheese for a casserole dish as big as mine. I will likely experiment with this recipe to see what works for us. For instance, I am curious to try it with cream cheese in place of mushroom soup. That sounds yummy! I will also add in a layer of beans (pinto or black beans) to add another dimension. I will not start with a layer of Doritos since my bottom layer came out as mush. Lastly, this is not a 2 serving recipe. This will serve 4-6 easily. This was not a "pretty" dish and was not multi-dimensional, but it has good potential.

Delicious! I substituted ground turkey for the ground beef and used nacho cheese flavored doritos. Next time, I think I'll used baked Nacho Cheese Doritos to reduce the fat content even more. This definately makes 4-6 servings, not 2 as listed in the nutrition box. I'll make this again.

It has been along time since I have had this casserole. Our former Pastor's wife made this for potlucks. I added a 15 oz. can of drained and rinsed pinto beans since that is how she made hers. It tasted just liked I remembered. Thanks Julesong. Bullwinkle.

This recipe was good and very easy to make. I think the servings are off, it easily serves 4-6 people which is a good thing since the calories for 2 servings is over 1200 (not even including the chips)

This is a winner! Yet another easy recipe with wonderful taste. I added the cheese at the last 5 mins of baking. Served myself with a spoonful of Sour Cream on top. I am very happy with it. I had some left over Soup/Rotel mix left over: so I thought it would be wonderful with some chips later. I just love recipes you can use in other ways. Thank You, Hugs

This is an easy, good weeknight meal. My husband and I enjoyed this meal and will definitely make again with a few minor changes. We added one can of rinsed black beans to the ground beef layer. Next time I'm also going to add half a packet of taco seasoning and a bit of water to the meat mixture. My husband also recommended adding a few pickled jalapeños between the layers.

made this with velveeta instead of shredded and seems like it worked better..covered doritos on top layer much better. Also used our local grocers skillet mix ground beef mixturem(ground beef thats pre seasoned) and its super cheap. #lbs of it cost 4 dollars and its good in casseroles like this , chili, spagetti etc. I loved it. Great quick/cheap emal for a family of 4
