The other night I was looking through the cook book my Granny gave me of all of her favorite recipes to find something to make for dinner. We tend to gravitate towards the same foods and cooking methods in this house and I wanted something new and different. I landed on Taco Bake. Because it sounded frickin delicious. And it was!
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 can refried beans
1 can Manwich
1 can no bean chili
1 package Taco seasoning
1/4 cup water
2 c shredded cheese
Brown the beef in a pan and drain. Then add the beans, Manwich, chili, Taco seasoning and water. Mix! In a casserole dish, layer half of the meat mixture, then a layer of cheese, and a layer of Doritos. Add another layer of meat, then cheese, and Doritos. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Serve with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, olives, sour cream, avocados, etc! We scooped it with tortilla chips but my Granny recommends Spanish rice as a side.
It was really easy and it serves a LOT. Six people or so I’d say because we could easily have three dinners out of it for the two of us.
This could even be used as an appetizer dish. Sort of like a baked, warm, gooey layer dip. Nomnom!

I always tend to make the same things too! This looks so delicious, I really should try and make this one too! 😀
that looks like the best sort of random casseroles that my grandma made too. i think they were all about putting chips in dishes. 🙂
OMGosh, this is awesome and something I am going to have to dry soon!
