Spicy Doe Casserole

Spicy Doe Casserole 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.

Apparently, Spicy Doe Casserole is a teenager’s 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!

Spicy Doe Casserole

Prep Time: 3 MinutesYield: 8 Servings
Cook Time: 27 MinutesServing Size: 1 Serving
Total Time: 30 MinutesCalories Per Serving: 552

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground venison burger
  • 15 oz can of Ranch Style beans
  • 12 oz. of tortilla chips, crushed
  • 10 oz. Ro-tel tomatoes
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2.5 cups mild shredded cheddar cheese
  • 10.5 oz. of cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 pack of taco seasoning
  • Sour cream and salsa for topping (optional)

Instructions:

  1. In a large skillet, fry the ground deer burger on medium-high heat until done, which should be about 7 minutes. Then remove any excess grease.
  2. Now turn the heat down to medium-low and add the onion and all of the spices and salt and mix well.
  3. Now add the beans, tomatoes, soup, and water.
  4. Let it simmer for about 10 minutes–just long enough to let everything heat up and mingle together and tenderize the onions a little.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375 °F and in a 9″ x 13″ casserole dish, add a layer of the crushed tortilla chips.
  6. Top it with the venison bean mixture and then add one cup of cheese.
  7. Do the layers once more and cover the top evenly with the remaining 1 1/2 cups of cheese.
  8. Lightly spray the inside of a piece of foil with cooking spray, make a tent and cover the casserole dish and bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is thoroughly melted and bubbly.

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!
