My Dorito Taco Salad Casserole is full of Mexican flavors in a delicious baked casserole with a fresh, crisp salad on top! Layers of taco seasoned ground beef, pinto beans and corn make the base that’s then topped with crunchy Doritos chips, shredded cheddar cheese, olives and green onions. We serve this dorito casserole with our favorite taco toppings, like lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream.
