Prepare two cups mashed potatoes, or use left overs.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9”x9” square baking dish, and set aside.
Cook burger in a medium non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is ¾’s browned, and add the garlic, half of the onion (1/4 cup), and all of the bell pepper in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is fully browned (drain if not using extra-lean burger). Stir in beans, chili sauce, chili powder, corn, mild green chilies, and heat to boiling, cover, and reduce heat to low to simmer for 5 minutes.
If cold, heat mashed potatoes in microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes.
Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes, until bubbly and cheese has melted. Remove from oven and sprinkle crushed nacho doritos around outer edge of baking dish over meat/bean mixture, garnish with sliced green onions, and serve. – Enjoy!
