Bean 'N' Cheese Burritos Recipe

Bean 'N' Cheese Burritos Recipe

This is a recipe from my mom that I adapted. She made it with tortillas, but we both agree it's easier and quicker using frozen burritos. I make it about once each month.—Karen Middleton, Elyria, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 8 frozen bean and cheese burritos (about 5 ounces each), thawed
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 can (10 ounces) enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend or cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1 cup sliced ripe olives
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 6 cups shredded lettuce
  • Salsa and sour cream, optional


  • 1. Arrange burritos in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. In a large bowl, whisk the soup, sauce and milk until blended; stir in 1 cup of cheese and the chilies. Pour over burritos. Sprinkle with the olives, onions and remaining cheese.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until bubbly and lightly browned. Serve on a bed of lettuce with salsa and sour cream if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"Fabulous sauce and delicious! I am saddened I can no longer make it as my husband is on a low-fat diet as the frozen burritos are very high in fat. When I come up with a lo-fat remake, I will try this again...the sauce alone makes it worth having...yummy!"

"We finished dinner an hour ago, and my husband is still raving about this dish. I agree it is very tasty and even is quick and easy. Everyone loved it. The only change I would make is to use 10 burritos as there would be plenty of sauce for that many. As it is, we plan to use the leftover sauce as a dip for some tortilla chips."

"The ultimate cheater recipe. Turns out very yummy, we all loved it, even the kiddos. I left out the green chilles as no one here likes them. This is the perfect answer to a busy weeknight dinner."
