To make my scrumptious Dorito casserole, start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.

Next, in a large skillet, cook the ground beef until done, and drain off any excess grease.

After that, add ⅓ cup water and the taco seasoning, stir and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, then turn off the heat.

Stir in the black beans, corn, tomatoes and green chiles, cream of chicken soup and the sour cream.

Now, spread ½ of the crunchy Doritos chips evenly into the bottom of your prepared pan (spray pan with Pam), and layer with half of the meat mixture.

Top with half of the cheese, and add the remaining meat mixture, evenly spread the remaining Doritos chips.

Finally, top it all off with the remaining cup of cheese. Spray a piece of foil with a non-stick cooking spray and cover the casserole.

Now, just bake your Dorito casserole for 30 minutes, covered.

Remove the foil and bake for another 5-10 minutes, or until chips begin to brown around the edges.
