How to Make Easy Burrito Casserole:

  1. Preheat & Prepare: Start by setting your oven’s mood to a warm 350 degrees.
  2. Brown the Beef: In a large skillet, let the ground beef dance over medium-high heat until it’s thoroughly browned, telling tales of sizzles and aroma.
  3. Season the Moment: Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the beef. Stir and sauté for an extra 2-3 minutes, letting the flavors mingle.
  4. The Flavorful Mix: Welcome the corn, enchilada sauce, refried beans, and green chilis to the party. Stir them in and let them simmer together for 5 minutes, creating a melody of flavors.
  5. Layering the Joy: In a well-greased 9×13 baking dish, lay down a base with 4 of your halved flour tortillas. Think of it as the foundation of this culinary building.
  6. Build the Layers: Spoon half of your seasoned meat mixture over the tortillas. Shower it with half of the shredded cheese, like a cheesy cascade.
  7. Repeat the Magic: Place the remaining tortillas over this, followed by the rest of the meat and a final, generous layer of cheese.
  8. Bake to Perfection: Let your casserole bask in the oven’s warmth for 20 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and golden, like a sunny day.
  9. The Final Touch: If desired, garnish with freshly chopped green onions for a burst of color and freshness.
