  1. First of all, to start making this Doritos Taco Casserole at home, you need to prepare for the oven.

  3. Prepare a skillet and heat it over medium-high heat.
  4. Next, place the ground beef on it and cook them along with the diced onions and minced garlic.
  5. Sauté for several minutes until the beef is not pink anymore. After that, don’t forget to drain the excess fat produced by the beef.
  6. When it is done, you still need to cook the beef mixture along with other ingredients, such as taco seasoning, 65 ml of water and salsa.
