It’s not always the painstaking recipes with the obscure ingredients. Sometimes it’s the simple, goofy dish that conjures holiday feelings and becomes a tradition, like this one, made by Grandma Joann and shared by her grandson, our ceramic engineer, Devin McMillen.
1 pound ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
1 16 oz. package of Velveeta cheese cut into large cubes
1 10 oz can Rotel tomatoes
1 bag of Doritos in the flavor of your choice
1 head iceberg lettuce, shredded
1 tomato, diced
Empty the bag of Doritos in a wide bowl or on a rimmed platter and set aside.
In a saucepan, brown ground beef for 5-6 minutes, add taco seasoning and cook an additional 2-3 minutes, or until beef is cooked through. To the pan, add Rotel and Velveeta, cook 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Once fully incorporated, pour the mixture over the Doritos, top with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and sour cream. Enjoy!
