Taco Casserole

This recipe is adapted from one of my favorite cookbooks – Homestyle Cooking from Southern Living.  This was so easy to make.  I made the meat mixture the night before and assembled the casserole when I got home from work.  This was on the table in no time!  We both loved this dish, but how could you not with taco meat, cheese and Doritos!  You could also use the filling as a quick dip for tailgating – just leave out the crushed Doritos and serve with chips.

  3. I made something similar to this the other day and thought it still needed work. It had a chipotle seasoned masa crust instead of the chips. To my surprise, the boys devoured it. Hmmm maybe it didn't need work after all 😉
