Burrito Casserole Recipe

Burrito casserole is one of my favorite Mexican casserole dishes. It’s called burrito casserole because it uses ingredients similar to that of a burrito. This was a big hit with my family and its something almost everyone is sure to enjoy. This casserole is basically a beef and refried bean mixture mixed with cheese, cream of mushrooms soup and torn flour tortillas. You can use either ground beef or ground turkey for this recipe. Even spice it up with a little hot sauce and you could add black olives, tomato and lettuce on top if you choose. This is very easy and delicious meal if you are looking for something quick to prepare. Enjoy.

1lb ground beef
½ medium yellow onion (chopped)
1 (1 ¼ ounce) package taco seasoning
6 large flour tortillas
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
2-3 cups shredded taco cheese (or cheddar cheese)
1 ( 10 ¾ ounce) can cream of mushrooms soup
4 ounces sour cream
hot sauce (optional)

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: In a large skillet brown ground beef and onion. Drain. Add taco seasoning and stir in refried beans.  In a separate bowl mix together cream of mushroom soup and sour cream.
Step 2: Spread ½ of the sour cream mixture onto the bottom of a casserole dish. Tear up 3 tortillas and spread them over the sour cream mixture. Put ½ of the meat and bean mixture on top of that. Add a layer of shredded cheese (add hot sauce is using). Repeat the layers.
Step 3: Sprinkle cheese over the top and place into the oven and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.

    Now this was a tasty little casserole dish. I did have to make some changes. I made homemade taco seasoning just b/c I try to avoid the packets. Other than that, I didn’t have refried beans and I used a can of pinto beans. It still turned out great. Next time, I may try corn tortillas and may make some refried beans just to try it out! Tasty casserole!

    Thanks for the recipe. We have made it twice in the past month. We stick pretty faithfully to the recipe but use homemade taco seasoning and add a little salsa to the meat mixture to get the consistency to where we like it. Simple but tasty.

    Has anyone used corn tortillas in this recipe? Trying it now.

    I made this about a week ago and i was not impressed. It had a good flavor but the tortillas got really mushy. That just turned my husband and I off. I will try to make this again but substitute rice for the tortillas like someone else suggested.
