Dorito Burrito Bake

Our family loves this dish!
I top mine with sour cream, salsa, guacamole and crushed Doritos.

I need to confess something.  I've made this Dorito Burrito Bake since college.  So, circa 2002 when I finally got myself out of the dorms and my roommates and I were in an apartment with a full kitchen.  Well, we liked to call it a "town home", but I digress.

Regardless I've been making this simple, tasty dish for 15 years and it started well before I had a husband or a family.  I was simply feeding whoever wandered into our apartment town home. Basically this means anyone can make it.  No talent is required other than knowing how to read.

Let's fact it.  My primary focus in college was how to survive Friday morning at work when I drank way to much on Thursday night.

And I could STILL come home that night and whip this together.  Everyone loves Mexican food. Everyone loves a dish in a 9x13 pan.  And everyone loves Doritos.

Yes, we all love Doritos.  Don't lie.

I made this a few days back and baked it up early in the day, fully knowing we'd all be eating at different times that night due to flag football games.

Can I speak about that for a moment?

I love sitting at those games and watching our oldest play his heart out.  It's so fun!  Minus the drizzle, wind, rain and cold.  One game I'm drenching wet and the next game I'm ripping off layers sweating.

But anyway, on those nights some of us eat prior to the games and some of us eat after {hence, the boy playing football}, so I like to have something that is quick to reheat or ready to go in the crock pot.  This one is perfect, as heck you could bake it up the day prior and just reheat a square at a time when needed.  Love that!

This Dorito Burrito Bake is not fancy.  This is a meal you can feed your kids or even company, because guess what?  It tastes good!

Take some help from the crescent roll bottom, a taco meat layer and cheese {of course} and lastly top it with whatever you want!  We love shredded lettuce, sour cream, salsa and homemade guacamole, but do whatever you want.

Dorito Burrito Bake

2 c. crushed Cool Ranch Doritos, plus additional for topping
1 lb. hamburger
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 c. salsa
2 c. shredded Colby cheese
shredded lettuce, salsa, sour cream, crushed chips for topping

1.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2.  Grease a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.  Unroll the crescent rolls and layer on the bottom of the pan, pinching seams together.
3.  In a saucepan, cook the hamburger until no longer pink and drain off the grease.  Stir in the sour cream and salsa.  Spread the crushed Doritos over the crescent rolls then spread the meat mixture over the crescent rolls.  Top with cheese. Bake for 25 minutes.
4.  Remove from the oven and cut into squares.  Top with additional lettuce, salsa, sour cream and crushed Doritos.

And that cutting board shown in these photos?  That is my Epicurean Iowa Shaped Cutting Board.  It was sent to me a few years back from the company and I love it!  I'm not sure if you can still get these boards in the shape of your state, but I do love this 3-piece set!

You know what else I make using the convenience of crescent rolls?  Here are a few of my favorites.

Would you like to comment?

  1. I made this for dinner tonight. It was really good. Would have never thought to put the chips over the crescent dough but it worked! I used Ground Turkey instead of ground beef and added a few seasonings since ground turkey is a little bland. We all liked it and it was super easy. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe!
