  1. MichelleK says

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

    • No, but we have frozen the leftovers, Michelle. That works.

      Ann

    • Did you ever try to freeze it before cooking? How did it turn out if so?

    • Linda Hardbarger says

      Does anyone know why the cream of mushrooms soup? Can you make it without it or is there a substitute? Love the sound of this recipe until I got to the soup 🙁

      • Linda, you need a cream based soup or it will be dry as cardboard. Cream of onion possibly? (You’d have to really like onions though).

        Ann

      • thomas rogers says

        I replaced the cream of mushroom with cream of chicken, and used pinto beans, and made the top layer the sour cream/soup mixture!!! Turned out way better!!

      • just use mild red enchilada sauce instead of soup .tastes more authentic too ! If you can’t find enchilada sauce stir a packet of taco seasoning into tomato sauce as a reasonable substitute.

  2. natalie : Life as i know it says

    i wish i knew how to cook!

  3. Jay @CraftySpices says

    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. Darling Dame says

    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. Tamona Valentine says

    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.”

      Ann

  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?

    • Well, these don’t end up soggy and gross. Tearing helps. Now if you had a hard chip, that could end up soggy.

      Ann

      • I made this for dinner two nights ago and the tortillas actually did turn out very soggy (I made it exactly as the recipe stated) but it’s still delicious, I just have a hard time with the texture of the tortillas. I wish there was a way to prevent it. I think if the mushroom soup/sour cream mixture wasn’t on the bottom of the tortillas it would work much better! I’ll try it that way next time

  10. xxjenadanxx says

    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!! 🙂

  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!

      Ann

  20. Wow Ann…..Just read all of the comments and I hope you will continue with good ideas and not be put off by Somme of these folks. I certainly appreciate the compliments people paid you. I realize we all don’t like the same thing but good gracious folks, use your noggins to figure some it out your selves or if you don’t/didn’t like it choose your words. Thanks for your contribution Ann. I look forward to trying it soon.

    • I love to see how people change up a recipe to better suit their taste. If you think these comments were off-putting (I honestly don’t), you should see what doesn’t get approve (as downright nasty)!

      I hope you and your family enjoy this. Kids truly love it (adults seem to be hit or miss).

      Ann

  21. I have a question do I put the cream of mushroom mix layer it again?? I put it on the bottom
