Dorita Pie

Taco casseroles are pretty close to my number one for slop food. This casserole is probably already a thing, but I'll lay it out in case if anything I need a refresher. This is a low hanging branch of King Ranch Chicken (beef) a common Tex-Mex dish that's morphed into all kinds of recipes over the years. Taco Casserole re-named Dorita Pie because that's what was used.

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.

If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much other than what my browser flags. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
