This Dorito Taco Bake recipe looks very festive and has plenty of lively flavor. It’s also a very quick recipe; the prep and baking shouldn’t take you more than an hour. I have to say, a recipe like this is about as family-friendly as it gets. It’s also a rather versatile recipe, with plenty of possible substitutions and optional extras. I have to admit, it may not be the healthiest recipe in the world (at least not as-is), but the kids will love it, and I imagine that you will find a lot to enjoy about it as well (particularly on one of those busy midweek nights).
If you want to lighten this recipe up a bit, you can substitute ground turkey for the ground beef or go with low-fat cheese and sour cream. You can also add a layer of refried beans, if you like, or go with tortilla chips instead of Doritos for a bit of a lighter flavor. If you want to experiment with the texture of the dish a bit, you can try baking the crescent rolls for a few minutes before putting the other ingredients in there or hold off on adding the chips until the last 10 minutes of baking.
