Super Nachos!

This recipe has been a favorite for a very long time. I mostly remember my mom making this on Christmas Eve and I always thought it was cool that I could have Doritos for dinner!

I made this for Valentine's Day this year and it felt like a fun and out of the ordinary dinner. The kids and my husband loved it! This would have also been a great party dish for the Super Bowl.

I like how pretty it is with the lettuce on top. My mom always used chopped tomatoes, green onion, olives around the perimeter and a big scoop of guacamole in the center with some sour cream on top of that. Very festive! And the fun thing....use the Doritos to scoop and eat!

Super Nachos


1 lb of ground beef
1 packet of taco seasoning
water according to packet

1 can of bean dip (I use Frito's original or jalapeno)
1 can refried beans
1 cup Monterrey Jack cheese
1 cup Cheddar cheese

Shredded lettuce
Sliced olives
Fresh diced tomatoes
Chopped green onion
sour cream

1 bag nacho cheese flavored Doritos


Brown your ground beef, drain and prepare with taco seasoning according to package.

Combine the bean dip and refried beans and spread on the bottom of a 9"x13" casserole dish. Layer prepared taco meat on top. Sprinkle cheeses on top.

Place in oven a 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes until cheese is browned and bubbly.

Arrange lettuce, tomatoes, onion and olives around perimeter of casserole dish.

Serve with Doritos, guac and sour cream.
