Bean Burrito Casserole {Recipe}

bean burrito casserole

My family had the privilege of of trying out a new meal this week! I found this Burrito Pie recipe on Thriving Home and thought I would give it a try. I have made many recipes from this website and each one has been shockingly delicious! This is my go-to-site for new recipe ideas. I also love that there are a lot of freeze-ahead meals on the site too.

When I went shopping, I wasn’t able to find enchilada sauce for this recipe, and I also altered the recipe to fit everyone’s taste buds. It ended up being a hit and everyone loved it. Here is the version I made for my family. It’s more of a Tex-Mex style, than true Mexican style, but feel free to add different and spicy veggies, if that’s what your family likes!

Cook Time
1 hr
Cook Time
1 hr
  1. 2 lbs ground beef
  2. 1 onion, finely chopped
  3. 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  4. 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
  5. 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
  6. 8 (8 inch) whole wheat flour tortillas
  7. 1 cup sour cream
  8. 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (give or take)
  1. In a large skillet, brown the beef for 5 minutes on high. Add the onions and garlic; saute for about 5 minutes. Strain to remove excess grease; return to pan. Add tomatoes and sour cream; stir thoroughly; simmer on low for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  3. While meat mixture is simmering, spread a thin layer of refried beans on one side of each tortilla; set aside.
  4. In the baking dish(es), spread a thin layer of the meat mixture on the bottom of the dish. Then, layer tortilla (beans up), meat mixture, and sprinkle a thin layer of cheese; repeat until ingredients are all used up.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until cheese is browning and bubbly on top.
  1. If your kids are really picky about onions (like mine), grate them. They won't even know they are there!
  2. This recipe can be made into a freeze-ahead meal. Check out the original recipe, linked below, for specific directions.
