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.
