Burrito Lasagna Recipe

A friend showed me how to make stacked enchiladas years ago. I took it even further to create this filling casserole. I serve it with Mexican corn or chips and dip. I love the rave reviews I get every time I make it.—Deana Briggs, Maud, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Bake: 30 min. + standing YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 cans (10 ounces each) enchilada sauce
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning

  • 12 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • 1 can (15 ounces) refried beans
  • 4 cups (16 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in enchilada sauce, taco seasoning and cumin; heat through.
