Enchilada Dip

I first made this enchilada dip several years back for a Superbowl party. And I believe the original recipe came from a TV show. It's quite an unusual dip, and one that I would have been a little leary of if it hadn't been for the persuasion of the people cooking it on TV. Sometimes I fall for their Mmmm...'s and Yuuummm's just too darn easily. And fortunately, every now and then, that quality of mine pays off.

This dip is really very good! The ingredients include crushed Doritos, enchilada sauce, onion, chili (yes - a can of chili), cheese, and tomato sauce. A little odd... but it all comes together nicely.

Once baked, it's taken out of the oven and spread with sour cream, sprinkled with more Dorito pieces, and topped off with freshly grated Cheddar cheese. Stick it back in the oven for five minutes to let it all melt.

It's great served with tortilla chips. Or, if you're a real big fan of Doritos and don't think there's enough in the dip, you can take that option as well. We promise not to judge you.

Enchilada Dip

1 large 13 oz. bag Doritos
2 Tbsp. onion, grated
10 oz. can chili with beans
10-15 oz. can enchilada sauce
8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 and 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Topping ingredients:
2 cups Doritos, crushed
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 and 1/4 cups sour cream

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2. Crumble 6 cups Doritos into a large mixing bowl. Add the onion, the chili, the enchilada sauce, tomato sauce, and 1 and 1/2 cups of the Cheddar cheese to the crumbled Doritos. Stir with a rubber spatula to combine. Place mixture into an 8.5 x 11-inch oven proof casserole dish. Bake for 20 minutes.

3. Remove from the oven. Spread the sour cream over the top of the casserole with a large spoon or a rubber spatula. Top with remaining 2 cups Doritos. Then sprinkle with the 1/2 cup of the Cheddar cheese. Bake for another 5 minutes and serve warm.

My hubby and his family are addicted to enchiladas. I think this dip would send them overboard. Thanks for sharing it!

I would have to slowly . . . back . . . away from the table to even have a chance of not completely gorging on this. It sounds incredible!
