  • 1 bag (255 g) Doritos® Nacho Cheese flavoured tortilla chips
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 lb (500 g) lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pouch (35 g) taco seasoning
  • 1 cup (250 mL) sodium-reduced beef broth
  • 1 cup (250 mL) mild, medium or hot salsa
  • 1 cup (250 mL) sour cream
  • 2 cups (500 mL) shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted and chopped
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) thinly sliced green onion

How to make it:

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF (180°C). Lightly grease 9-inch (2 L) square baking dish. Using hands, lightly break Doritos® tortilla chips into large pieces; set aside.
  2. Heat oil in large, non-stick skillet set over medium-high heat. Crumble in ground beef; cook for about 5 minutes or until browned. Add onion, red pepper and garlic; cook for about 5 minutes or until softened.
  3. Sprinkle taco seasoning over beef mixture; stir in broth and salsa. Simmer for 5 to 7 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream.
  4. Spoon half of the beef mixture evenly into prepared baking dish. Top with half of the cheese and Doritos® tortilla chips; repeat layers once. Cover with foil.
  5. Bake for about 30 minutes or until heated through. Remove foil; bake for 5 to 10 minutes or until bubbling around edges. Garnish with lettuce, tomato, avocado and green onion.

Tip: Use mozzarella and queso fresco cheese instead of Cheddar cheese if desired. Serve with additional sour cream on top for a creamier version if desired.
