  • 1 pound ground beef

  • ¾ cup water

  • 1 envelope taco seasoning mix

  • 5 taco shells

  • ½ (12 ounce) bag nacho cheese-flavored corn chips (such as Doritos®), crushed

  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend

  • 1 dash hot pepper sauce (such as Frank's RedHot®), or to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat until meat is crumbly and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain excess grease; stir in water and taco seasoning mix. Reduce heat to low and simmer the meat mixture until thickened, 4 to 6 minutes.

  3. Bake taco shells on a baking sheet in the preheated oven until crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Let cool for about 5 minutes and break apart into bite-size pieces.

  4. Transfer seasoned ground beef to a large serving bowl and mix in the nacho cheese corn chips, taco shell pieces, Mexican cheese blend, and hot pepper sauce.
