Hi there, friends! Today we are sharing a Doritos taco pie in the Ninja Foodi. We have to say, almost all our recipes that we share are great, have been tested, are simple, and not a whole lot of fuss.
Inspired By Our 17-year-old
This recipe is amazing. It was inspired by our 17-year-old. I tell you, these kids today are so clever.
Our son has given me a lot of inspiration not only with recipes but with his creativity. All I have to do is ask, and he comes up with ideas. It really helps me out in many ways. First, it beats cooking things that he doesn’t like, and two, it’s a little edgier than some traditional everyday recipes. He absolutely was head over heels for this recipe. So much so, he went back for thirds!
Doritos Taco Pie in the Ninja Foodi
Perhaps you have heard of Taco Bells Loco Taco? I believe you can order it with a cool ranch shell, Nacho, or Fiesta?. I have to admit, I have never had one, so I trusted our son’s taste test. He told me all that was in it, and I went from there with my own spin.
It’s Kinda Healthy
This Doritos taco bake really isn’t that unhealthy. You can use low-carb tortillas, a lean ground sirloin, and low fat ranch dressing, and shredded cheese. It’s up to you to do the calorie count, but I assure you, it isn’t that high per serving.
Doritos Taco Pie
- 1 lb, Ground beef or sirloin
- ranch dressing, light or fat free is optional
- 8-10 oz. Shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 to 1/2 cup Cool ranch Doritos, or Nacho
- 1.5 oz. packet Taco seasoning
- Sour cream is optional
- 5 Flour tortilla soft round shells
- First set your pot on saute mode. Add in ground beef or sirloin. Be sure to break it up as you are sauteing it. Brown on both sides. Add in taco seasoning and mix well.
- Using you 7′ Springform pan, place a piece of round parchment paper on the bottom, or spray with non-stick cooking spray if you do not have parchment paper. I like to use the parchment paper, because it won’t scratch the pan when cutting your slices, and it also makes clean up a bit easier.
- Take your first tortilla shell and line the bottom of the pan. Next, spread a thin layer of ranch dressing on the bottom of the shell. Add a layer of meat, cheese, and a little more ranch dabbed on top of mixture. Take your next shell and press on top of your first layer firmly to flatten your ingredients. Repeat the same exact process until you reach the top of the pan. Your top layer can be plain with only a thin layer of ranch and some shredded cheese on top.
- Next, place pan on a trivet rack with handles for ease of in and out of pot. Add one cup of water to the pressure cooker. Lower pan in the pot and set on High Pressure for 5 minutes. Do a quick release.
- Take approximately one cup of crushed Doritos and add them on top of taco pie. Lower crisping lid, set to bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Remove, let cool down for about 5 minutes before serving. May top with lettuce, tomatoes and ranch, or if you prefer sour cream. ENJOY!
