Tostito Scooper Meat and Cheese Hot Dish

READY IN: 40mins




  • In medium saucepan, add margarine and flour.
  • Whisk until margarine melted and flour blended. Add milk. Whisk on medium heat until sauce starts to thicken.
  • Add cilantro and blend.
  • Cook a few minutes and take off heat. Set aside.
  • Preheat oven 375°.
  • Use a shallow baking dish with 1 to 2 inch sides. I use a 10 1/2 inch round Pyrex baking dish. Spray dish with Pam.
  • Cook burger in medium fry pan until just browned.
  • Option 1. Add 1 cup cream sauce to the meat. Reserve the balance for the top.
  • Option 2. Add the reserved tomato juice to meat and save the cream sauce for the top.
  • Pour scoopers in the baking pan.
  • Spoon meat over scoopers.
  • Add diced tomatoes.
  • Add shredded cheeses.
  • Bake 20 minutes until cheeses are nicely melted, not brown.
  • Take out of oven. Add cream sauce on top.
  • Bake 10 minutes more until hot.
  • Set about 10 minutes.
  • Note: If you use fresh tomatoes like roma, you must add cream sauce to meat or it will be dry. There is not enough juice to add to the meat.
  • You can use other types of cheeses.
  • I like to use cream sauces and add flavoring nstead of canned soups which are too salty for us to eat now.
