Burrito Casserole 

This week we tried a burrito Casserole. I was a bit hesitant because the recipe requires cream of mushroom soup which seemed odd but it was so delicious! 

I tried to remember to take pictures through the process but wasn’t as good about it as I planned on being. 

This is another really easy recipe. 

Here’s a picture of the final product 

We didn’t have taco seasoning so I made my own. I’m going to include that recipe too but you can always use prepackaged. 

What you need:

Taco seasoning:


  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder 
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes 
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano 
  •  1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon paprika 

Burrito Casserole: 

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 medium white onion chopped 
  • 1 can refried beans 
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar 
  • 1 can cream of mushroom
  • 6 tortillas
  • 1 ½ cups cream cheese

The Process: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350*
  2. Brown ground beef until no longer pink in a medium skillet with onions 
  3. Mix together taco seasoning ingredients if you are not using prepackaged.
  4. Drain meat and add taco seasoning and beans. Heat for about 5 minutes. 
  5. In a seperare bowl mix together cream of mushroom soup and sour cream. 
  6. Spread half of the sour cream and mushroom soup mixture in the bottom of a 13×9 glass baking dish 
  7. Place three tortillas on top of mixture. You will probably need to cut or overlap tortillas to make it fit 
  8. Cover tortillas with half of your beef mixture
  9. Top meat with 1 cup of cheese. 
  10. Repeat your sour cream and meat layer. 
  11. Top with 3 tortillas and cover with cheese
  12. Place in oven for 20 minutes.

We had it with a side of Mexican style rice. Again, delicious and easy!  

You could always make it with chicken instead and even add some jalepenos or chiles for a kick.
