Happy Tasty Tuesday! Today’s working mom-friendly burrito enchilada casserole recipe comes from Tela. She writes…
I’m not sure what this dish technically is, it’s sort of a mix between enchiladas and burritos, but leaning more toward the burrito side. Whatever it’s called, it’s easy and pretty delicious (and cheap!). I whipped it up when I was a poor grad student, so this isn’t a precise-measurement type of recipe. I sort of just wing it.
Burrito Enchilada Casserole
What You’ll Need:
- 1 can refried beans
- Sour cream
- 1 16-ounce package Cheddar, Cheddar Jack, Monterey Jack (Whatever your favorite type of “Mexican” cheese is) cheese, halfed
- 1 can enchilada sauce
- 1 package tortillas
What to Do:
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Mix refried beans, scallions, 1/2 bag of cheese, some sour cream (a couple spoonfuls is usually what I use) and half the can of Enchilada Sauce together in a bowl.
- Spray a 9×13 inch baking dish with Pam or grease lightly.
- Dollop spoonfuls of your bean mixture into tortillas and roll into burrito shape. Fill them with as much bean mixture to fit you and your family’s tastes.
- Line the baking dish with burritos/enchiladas.
- When the dish is filled, pour the remaining Enchilada Sauce over the burritos and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
- Bake until the bean filling becomes bubbly and cheese is melting/browning. Approximately 20 minutes or so.
