Creamy and Cheesy Beef and Bean Casserole

Recipe by KlynnPadilla
READY IN: 45mins


  • 3
    garlic cloves, minced
  • 1
    (1 1/4 ounce) envelope taco seasoning (or homemade)
  • 1
    (32 ounce) can refried beans (again, homemade is great if you have the time)
  • 1
    (10 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 13
    cup salsa, of your choice plus 1/2-3/4 cup additional
  • 2
    cups shredded cheese (I use cheddar and a colby jack blend, then throw some crumbled queso fresco on top for good measure)
  • sliced jalapeno (optional)
  • sliced black olives (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with vegetable oil spray; spread the refried beans in the bottom and set aside.
  • Brown the ground beef and garlic, drain, season with taco seasoning and stir in the cream of mushroom soup and the 1/3 cup salsa.
  • Layer on top of the beans: salsa, half of the cheese, the meat mixture, jalapeños and olives, if using, remaining cheese.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, and enjoy!
