Recipe: "Put-Everything-In-It" Mexican Surprise

by Cate on January 23, 2004


(In the Sweetnicks’ house, this will be forever known as Dorito Casserole).  Diane Sawyer admits she’s not a great cook … so she brings one of Charlie Gibson’s favorite recipes to share with Rachael.

1 can chili with beans
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 large 12-ounce package Doritos (save 2 cups for casserole topping)
10-15 oz. enchilada sauce
8 oz. can tomato sauce
2 tbsp. onion, grated
1 1/4 cup sour cream

For the topping, set aside sour cream, 1/2 cup of the grated cheese and 1/3 of the Doritos bag. Grate a small onion and measure 2 tablespoons and set aside.

Take remaining 6-cups Doritos and crumble with your hands into mixing bowl. Mix the onion, and all the other ingredients, except those for the topping, and place into an 8 1/2×11-inch casserole dish.

Bake for 20 minutes at 375°F. Remove casserole from oven. Spread on sour cream, cover with Doritos and sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese. Bake for an additional 5 minutes and serve.

Yields 4 servings

Sweetnicks’ Notes: that’s crazy! We have tons leftover! More like serves 8 (assuming this is not a main course).
