Everyone loves tacos, right? Well, this is basically a taco casserole of sorts that is loaded with flavor. It has the taco taste, delicious ground venison with spicy beans, tortilla chips, tomatoes, green chilies, onions and two layers of gooey cheddar cheese.
How does that sound? Does that get your taste buds excited?
Apparently, Spicy Doe Casserole is a teenagers dream! I made this recently while both of my son’s had friends over. It was devoured almost instantly! Then I heard one of their friends say, “This is awesome! Your mom is the best.” So, in order to keep the title of being “the best” next time, I’ll have to make at least two pans.
It’s definitely a crowd-pleaser!
Feel free to print our recipe card:
Let it cool for a few minutes and cut down the middle long-wise, and then cut across twice, making six even squares. You can top with sour cream and/or salsa or eat it just as it is. It’s extremely filling!
The good, the bad and the delicious…
- Spicy Doe Casserole has lots of protein and some essential vitamins including vitamin A and calcium.
- Unfortunately, it’s also high in calories, fat, cholesterol, and sodium.
