Burrito Casserole Mexican Recipe


1 can Refried beans
12 ounces Block Monterey
  Jack Cheese, grated
1 can Chopped green chilies
  (unless cheese is the kind
  with Jalapenos)
1 small Can Hunts tomato sauce

 Burrito Casserole Mexican Recipe


Mix the tomato sauce with the browned hamburger & onions, set aside. Soften the tortillas in microwave. Spread first tortilla with refried beans and sprinkle heavily with grated cheese. Put them in the bottom of a round 1-1/2 qt. casserole. Spread 2nd tortilla with thin layer of beans and place it on top of the first layer. Spread generously with meat mixture and add a generous sprinkling of peppers and a scant sprinkling of cheese. Continue layering tortillas with the emphasis alternating between bean & cheese combo and meat and pepper combination. Reserve enough of the beans to spread a thin layer on the top tortilla, and cover it with a THICK layer of cheese. Cover it with saran wrap and heat on Medium in microwave for approximately 10 minutes until heated through. Serve with salsa and sour cream on the side. A salad and/or guacamole works well with this.
