To cook white rice

A nice appetizer is this:
On an oven-proof plate layout a layer of Doritos.
Then sprinkle a layer of grated cheese.
Then repeat… a layer of Doritos and a layer of cheese…. keep repeating until you form a pyramid. Finally sprinkle cheese all over.
Put in the oven at 180c for 10 minutes before serving.
