El Dorado Casserole

Pin It

Every two years our family gets together for a family reunion.  This year we were so happy that cousins Pat and Dan, along with their daughter Trish and Russ (husband) were able to join us.  They traveled from Oregon to Utah to be with the family.

For Patti's night of cooking, she decided to make a family recipe - El Dorado Casserole.  This casserole is great - a wonderful recipe for family night!

Here are the ingredients:

1 pound hamburger, browned and drained
1 package taco seasoning
1 can (8oz) tomato sauce
1 can black olives, sliced
1/2 pint cottage cheese
1 pint sour cream
2 cans mild diced green chilis
1-1 1/2 pounds cheddar cheese
1 bag Dorito chips

Add the taco seasoning, tomato sauce and olives to the browned meat.  In a separate bowl, combine the cottage cheese, sour cream and chilis.  Grate cheddar cheese and place in a bowl.  Crush Doritos and place in a bowl.

Spray 13x9 inch baking dish and layer as follows:

Meat mixture
Sour cream mixture

Keep layering with cheese ending on top.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Patti served this casserole with fajitas, although the casserole is a meal in itself!  Enjoy!
