A co-worker and I were trying to make burritos but when the tortillas were sticking together and were ripping apart we threw it into a cake pan.

ingredients

  • 8 -10 tortillas
  • 16 ounces refried beans
  • 1 14 ounces taco seasoning
  • 1 -2 lb hamburger (depends on how much meat you want in your casserole)
  • 16 ounces picante sauce
  • 2 -3 lbs taco cheese (your choice on type of cheese and quantity, depends on how much you LOVE cheese!)
  • sour cream
  • tomatoes
  • lettuce

directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Brown hamburger till all pink is gone.
  • Drain off as much grease as possible.
  • On medium Low heat stir in refried beans, 3/4 jar of picante sauce and burrito seasoning.
  • Heat till it is all warm and then shut off heat.
  • In a greased rectangle cake pan layer the bottom with whole tortillas, tear some of them up to fill in the spaces.
  • Spread 1/2 of the remaining picante sace on top of tortillas then sprinkle with the amount of cheese you desire.
  • Spread on your bean and meat mixture on top of cheese.
  • One more time the tortillas, (Skip the picante sauce), cheese, bean and meat mixture.
  • Put last layer of tortillas on spread the last 1/2 of picante sauce on and put cheese on the top (I usually use a 1 pound bag just for the topping).
  • Bake at 350 degrees till the cheese is melted. You may store and cook later or cook right away. If you store it, it will take longer to cook.
  • If serving immediatly top with sour cream, chopped tomatoes and chopped lettuce.

    Delicious and easy recipe. DH said it was one of the best Mexican dishes he has ever had. I used refried beans with green chilis mixed in them and did add some salsa with the picante sauce, other than that did not change a thing! Thank you for posting!
