Reviews for Burrito Bake
"Took about 25 minutes - smelled and tasted wonderful! I used a can of corn and beans instead of refried beans. Sour cream plus the other listed toppings are great on top. It is quite filling. I would like to make it again this way and maybe try to make it sometime with chicken."
"Very good and easy to put together. It's also versatile. I added a yellow pepper because I had one on hand and a whole small onion (we like onion), last thing was mont. jack cheese instead of mozzarella."
"Good, hearty meal. The crescent rolls make it very easy to put together. Can add salsa and/or diced chilies to the mixture for extra spice."
"Yummy and easy to put together. I added some salsa to the meat mixture."
"Excellent! I read the other reviews after making this. The meat mixture isn't too try, the crust is perfect, and the flavor is awesome...so much so that my husband insisted that I add this to my recipe box. Kudos to the author; we love it!!! PS: I served it topped with sour cream, chopped tomatoes, sliced olives and shredded lettuce. Will definitely make again and again."
""I made these baked burritos for my grandchildren last night and talk about a huge hit. They loved it. They are big fans of crescent rolls so I knew they'd love that part. There was a debate whether they were more like burritos or tacos. My granddaughter said it's more like puffy nachos. In any case, they loved it and have asked that I make it again for their next sleepover.""
"Super simple! Big hit at our house!"
"Hi Spiritvamp,The dough is on the bottom, the filling spilled over in the center hiding it. What you're seeing on top is all the glorious cheese.Hope that helps,Sue StetzelTaste of Home Magazine"
"The picture is very misleading. Recipe calls for the dough on the bottom topped with meat and cheese mixture, but it actually looks like the meat is on the bottom and the dough on top. Guess it go either way?"
"Very quick to make and tasty too! Only change I made was the use of reduced fat crescent rolls for the crust in order to make this a bit healthier. My Family Is NOT a big fan of lettuce as a topping. I served with salsa and no fat sour cream. Delicious!!"
"Family love it"
"very tasty. my family loves this"
"This was a treat. The combination of the Mexican spice & the sweetness of the crescent dough made this delectable. Didn't want to stop eating."
"Have been baking this Burrito bake for several years now(since it appeared in TOH cookbook)--everyone that has tried it loves it-both those preparing and those eating!

"This was very good and my family plus one guest really liked it. It is easy to prepare and makes a pretty presentation."
"Quite easy to make, and quite yummy"
"Really good! I also used mashed up kidney beans in place of the refried beans - and I added about 1/2 cup salsa to the ground beef mixture as it looked a little dry. I halved the recipe and used the extra crescent roll dough on the top so it came out a little more like a taco pie - my husband loved it!"
"I make this often. I have served this for company, and they rave on how good it taste."
"This recipe was so simple to make and my family loved it! There was not a single bit left over."
"My husband said this was a keeper"
"This was okay; I wasn't super impressed, but my boyfriend liked it. Next time I will use flour tortillas instead of the crescent dinner rolls."
"This was really easy and fun to make. My fiance absolutely loved it and says it's his favorite mexican dish yet."
