Burrito Casserole

I made this, Justin died, and then I made it again. It's one of those recipes that belong in my recipe book. It's simple and delicious comfort food. And I'm betting you have most of these ingredients in your pantry.

1 lb ground beef (I use ground turkey...I dare you to try it - it's delicious in this recipe)
1/2 onion, diced
1 (1.25 oz) package taco seasoning
6 flour tortillas
1 (16oz) can refried beans
2-3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 can cream of mushroom soup
4 ounces sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet brown meat with onion. Drain. Add taco seasoning and refried beans. In a separate bowl combine mushroom soup and sour cream.

Spread half the sour cream mixture in the bottom of a casserole dish. Tear up 3 tortillas and place them in an even layer of the sour cream mixture. Put half of the meat mixture over top of the tortillas. Top with half of the cheese. Repeat layers one more time.

Put in oven and bake, uncovered, for 20-30 minutes. Enjoy!!

  1. Found you via Pinterest. This was wonderful comfort food. Thanks!

  2. I wonder how this would be in the crock pot?

  3. Great recipe, we tried it tonight. Next time we are going use Mexican rice instead of flour tortillas though.

  4. Working on it now. It doesn't say what size pan to use... so going went with 9X13. I will double it next time... if it comes out as good as I think it will.

  5. Made this for dinner tonight!! It was to die!! Soooo good! Thanks!

  6. Does this freeze well? sounds sooo good!! I"m definitely trying it.

  7. Can you use something other than mushroom soup. Not a fan of mushrooms but want to try recipe.

    1. cream of celery? look at all the other "cream of ___".

  8. This sounds so easy (what I'm looking for) and delicious (what my bunch loves). And I have a few jars of homemade refried beans already in the freezer. This one's showing up on our table soon. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Can I prep this the night before and then stick it in the oven the next day, or will that mess up the tortillas?

  10. Just put this in the oven, thanks for the great recipe!!

  11. I am making this tonight however it is very high in points. So probably won't make it again. Too many points.

  12. So three ‘halves’ of mixture? Please clarify. Thank you!
