  1. So – I am wondering if you have ever made this ahead, then froze it?

  2. i wish i knew how to cook!

  3. I have done a similar version without the mushroom soup, but I will now be giving a try to your version. Thanks, maybe this will be dinner today (have to check if I have all the ingredients).
    Have a nice day!!

  4. Oh yum!! And it looks so easy too. Pinned, definitely going to have to make! Hope you have a fabulous week!

  5. Look at all that cheesy goodness! This looks delicious!!

  6. Ann, thank you for picking out my dinner for tomorrow. I was so tired of trying to think of something but honey you had me at CHEESE lmbo!

  7. Hey Ann – are you using a 9X13 pan here? and what is “medium size pieces” to tear the tortillas into?? LOL – You know i am a novice!!!

    • Yes ma’am, 13×9 pan. I wrote medium size tears, but maybe I should have written: “tear them so they fit in the pan, don’t overlap each other too much, and so you won’t have to struggle getting through the tortilla when you cut the finished product.”


  8. Looking forward to trying this with corn tortillas for my gluten free son. Burritos don’t really taste good made with them, but I think they might work fine in this!

  9. I’ve made similar casseroles before but the tortillas always end up being soggy and gross. Anyway to prevent this?

    I made this tonight. The flavors were okay but the we are texture people and unfortunately they were all wrong. We adults ‘(x3) couldn’t eat it. That being said, the kiddo really liked it.

  11. I had this recipe bookmarked and forgot about…. It is currently in the oven and I swear my family is all hovering over the oven just waiting for it…. smells so good!! I also made an extra and popped in the freezer to see if it can successfully be deemed a “freezer meal”… stay tuned!! 🙂

    • OMG… this is amazing!!!!! Like “WHY did I wait so long to make it” delicious!! 5/5 thumbs up from the Kelsey’s… and it makes a huge pan… like a lasagna…. its so cheesy and creamy and YUMMMMMMM

  12. I just made this for lunch for my husband, 14-yr-old stepson, and me. We all loved it! My hubby is still walking around the house, randomly exclaiming “Wow! That was killer!” haha. I know someone was concerned about the cream of mushroom soup. I just wanted to add that I really despise mushrooms myself. But I feel like once the sour cream and the cheese and the taco seasonings “meld” in the oven, the flavor of the cream of mushroom all but disappears, and just serves to make the whole thing feel way more creamy and cheesey. It was a real hit here. OH–I also added taco rice as an additional layer! Will be doing this on “Mexican night” from now on, instead of laying out an entire buffet of taco components. Thanks!

  13. Delicious I like burritos, this casserole looks perfect meal.

  14. Richard Kavanagh says:

    Made this to a tee and it turned out to be amazing

  15. I’m wondering if I substituted chicken for the beef would I need to change anything else

  16. Ok. I am trying this recipe with modification of some things I really like. I added fresh jalapeno and used bush’s mashed black beans instead of refried beans. Also included bell pepper into the veggie mix.

    To make it a tad healthier, I used ground turkey instead of beef and plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream.

    It’s in the oven now. I hope it tastes good. 🙂

    Thanks for the recipe idea!!!

  17. Absolutely FANTASTIC! Don’t hesitate to make this – exactly as written (unless you like additional jalapenos!).

  18. This recipe looks so delicious! Hi, I’m Anita visiting from Think and Make Thursday.

  19. I’m making this tonight! My oven is out of commission and was wondering if anyone has tried this in the crock pot?

    • I have not, Bryn. If you do it, and it comes out well, could you please come back with the changes, temp and time? That would be great if it worked!
