Easy Burrito Casserole

Easy Burrito Casserole


If your family likes burritos, they are going to LOVE this easy burrito casserole!  I make this at least once a month.  I usually make my Mexican Street Corn and Spanish Rice with it.  My kids LOVE it.  My husband loves it too 😀  You can change this recipe up and substitute chicken for the ground beef and green enchilada sauce for the red enchilada sauce.  I’ve also mixed green chiles in with the meat before and it tasted great!  I hope your family loves this recipe as much as ours does!
