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!!

  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.

    1. I wouldn’t’ because of the sour cream. Would make it the night before, refrigerate and cook when I get home the next day.

    2. Actually, since you are mixing the sour cream with the cream of mushroom, it might just freeze well. You could mix some up and test it to be sure, but I think you would be fine.

    2. Cream of Onion. Amazing what it does for everything that icky cream of mushroom, cream of chicken or cream of celery soups can't do.

    3. The pieces of mushroom soup are so small you won't even taste them.

    9. I used cream of Chile poblano .

    10. Cream of Mushroom soup is strong....if you don't like mushrooms like me! I substitute Cream of Celery or Cream of Asparagus. Maybe add a little beef flavoring. I use Better Than Bouillon brand bouillon. Its a paste. So much better than the granules.

  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!

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

    1. So why did you make it if you knew it was so high in points?

    1. No because of the flour tortillas, refried beans and cream of mushroom soup BUT it could be redone as one.

      Delete
  15. What size pan? And what do you mean it tastes like mushrooms?

    ReplyDelete
  16. How many would this serve? I have a group of
    16 so not sure how many recipes to make. Don know what size your pan was. Thanks

  17. Great recipe! This Texas girl had to "add to" w/ chopped red bell peppers & used Cream of Poblano soup in lieu of the mushroom. May add a can of chopped green chiles as well! I doubled for 9x13 and used 1lb each ground beef & turkey. Thanks for posting!

  18. I haven't made this yet but I would like to know the size of the flour tortilla you are using. I like to buy the large ones. 8" or 10" ???

  19. Sounds great.Cant wait to try it with the cream of onion soup.!!

  20. It's a cold, rainy day here, so I'm going to check the freezer for beef or turkey. I think I have everything else. It sounds like a perfect meal for a day like this.

  21. I freeze milk, sour cream, all sorts of dairy and they are fine. If you are still hesitant, freeze small portions of sour cream in an ice cube tray then stir in one or two when dish is warm...................But I agree with the others, since it is mixed with the soup it should freeze well...

  22. hi..i was just wondering if the shells get soggy with all that deliciousness on top of them???

    ReplyDelete
  23. Not a fan of refried beans. Csn I leave them out?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sounds delish! We are on a low carb kick right now so may try this tonight but with mexican style cauliflower rice as one of the layers instead of tortillas or real rice. Will see how it comes out!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Where can I find Mexican style cauliflower?

  27. Whover Justin is, she was simply juat saying he really, really liked the food!!!! He didn't actaully die-die.

  28. I just made this and it was fantastic! I changed it up just a tad, due to not having the exact ingredients on hand. I used black bean refried beans and added some frozen corn, just because. I layered the ingredients into two different pans since I'm cooking for two people and froze one without the cheese. I will add it when I bake it another time. Or I may gift it to someone who needs a meal.

  29. Would adding a can of Rotel tomatoes make it too soupy?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I just made this and used corn taco shells because I couldn't find the recipe that I got it for. I added cumin and cilantro and it's absolutely delicious!!! Thank you for this recipe, we loved it!!
