Burrito Casserole aka Mexican Lasagna
I hadn't made this in a long time and it's a super simple quick-fix meal.I think it's called Burrito Casserole but the kids always called it mexican lasagna.It does look like that with the all the yummy layers.
1-2 lbs ground beef (or turkey but that will give it a different flavor) 1 pkg 8" flour tortillas 1 pkg taco seasoning 1 jar salsa 1 can refried beans(I use fat free) 1 small onion chopped 2 Cups colby/jack cheese blend 1/2 tsp fresh or dried cilantro toppings~shredded lettuce,tomatoes,jalepenos,black olives,sour cream,whatever you like.
brown beef and onion then drain,add taco seasoning with a splash of water and let simmer for a few min.Mix salsa and beans together in bowl. Begin layering tortillas (2 at a time) in 9x12 casserole dish. add some of beef mix then bean mix,then some cheese.Continue layering just like you would lasagna.Top with cilantro then bake at 350 for 20-25 min then under broiler for about 5 min or until a bit brown and bubbly. YUM!
I'm a stay at home Christian mom of 7 kids ranging in age from 19 down to 6. I am truly a country girl at heart and hope to someday move to a small farm out in nowhere :) I love my family and my husband,I love to cook and try new recipes~mostly down home style food I ate growing up.
If you want a glimpse of Southern life,Come close and walk with me;I'll tell you all the simple things,That you are sure to see.You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees;
Caterpillars on the step,Wooden porches cleanly swept;Watermelons on the vine, Strong majestic Georgia pines Rocking chairs and front yard swingsJunebugs flying on a stringTurnip greens and hotcornbread,Coleslaw and barbecueFried okra, fried corn,fried green tomatoes,Fried pies and pickles too.
There's ice cold tea that 's syrupy sweet,And cool, green grass beneath your feet;Catfish nipping in the lake,And fresh young boys on the make.You'll see all these thingsAnd much, much more,In a way of life, that I adore.
