Super Bowl XLIV

I apologize for not posting step-by-step directions to this recipe, but I only make it on Super Bowl Sunday and didn't want to post it after the big game. This recipe is the perfect side dish at a party or for just pigging out at home, but it is definitely not a recipe you want to make more than once a year because it will take you at least a month to get your diet back under control. :) Just kidding. But it is super indulgent. Charlie Gibson's Enchilada Casserole. We call it Doritos Casserole and it is soooo good. I've been making it every year since 2002.

Casserole Ingredients:
1 large 13-ounce package Doritos (save 2 cups for casserole topping)
2 tbsp. onion, grated
1 10-ounce can chili with beans
10- to 15-ounce enchilada sauce
8-ounce can tomato sauce
1 and 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Topping Ingredients:

2 cups Doritos
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1¼ cups sour cream


1. Preheat oven to 375° F.

2. Crumble 6 cups Doritos with your hands into a large mixing bowl.

3. Add the onion, the chili, the enchilada sauce, tomato sauce and 1½ cups of cheddar cheese to the crumbled Doritos. Stir with a rubber spatula to combine. Place mixture into an 8½ x 11-inch oven proof casserole dish.

4. Bake for 20 minutes.

5. Remove from the oven. Spread the sour cream over the top of the casserole with a large spoon or rubber spatula. Top with remaining 2 cups Doritos. Then sprinkle with the 1/2 cup of the cheddar cheese.

6. Bake for another five minutes and serve.

Doritos, cheese, sour cream, chili...what's not to love? Give it a try and ENJOY!
