Dorito Casserole

SO I have funny story about this one. Jason has eaten this for quite some time now b/c his mother used to cook it for him when he lived with her. Well...the original ingredients called for a can a cream of mushroom soup. He was searching through the cupboard one day and noticed there was a can of cream of mushroom soup and he asked "What will you use the can of soup from because you know I don't like cream of mushroom soup or any mushrooms" and I said "I put it in the Dorito casserole that your mom cooks" and he said "I won't be eating that anymore" so I substitute a can of cream of chicken instead of mushroom. It taste good either way. The moral of my story is...don't tell Jason what is in the recipe and he will eat it. So I make sure wherever we go to eat to tell them not to tell him what is in the recipe. I think I might call him Mr. Picky from now on. SO...on with the recipe.

1 can Enchilada Sauce
2 cans cream of chicken soup (or one of mushroom and one chicken)
1 package of Mexican blend cheese
1 bag of Doritos (not the super super size, just regular size)
1 lb of lean meat (don't tell Jason I use lean...)

Brown meat in skillet and drain grease. Open dorito bag and crush the chips while in the bag. Mix soups and enchilada sauce and meat sauce in a large bowl, making it the meat sauce. Then in 9x13 inch glass dish layer the doritos, then meat sauce then cheese until you finish with doritos on top. (I usually get two layers of both ending with doritos on top) I actually the top the doritos with cheese to finish it off. (Jason loves cheese) Then cook 350 for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly.

Easiest recipe, this is my go-to meal when I don't have a lot of time. But everyone loves it and I make it at work now too! Enjoy.
