Family Burrito Bake

Family Burrito Bake

I recently hosted a Pampered Chef party, and one of the items I purchased was the Deep Dish Baker Cookbook.  It is filled with delicious, easy recipes, and I've marked a few to try.

This one however, caught my eye right away and was therefore the first on the list.

So good and filling too. Quick note, I didn't cook mine in the microwave, I adapted it to bake in the oven.

Adapted from Pampered Chef

1 med onion
1 lb of 90% lean ground beef
Cumin, thyme, basil, oregano and garlic powder (I just added in a sprinkle of each)

1 can Mexican-style corn, drained (11 oz)
1 jar (12oz or more) chunky salsa, divided
1 can (16oz) refried beans

(6 inch) corn tortillas
2 cups shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese blend, divided

In a skillet,  combine onion, beef, seasonings, and pressed garlic; mix well.   Drain.  Add in the can of corn and refried beans and stir to combine.

To assemble, place tortillas on bottom of baker or casserole dish, to cover.  Cut one tortilla to fill any gaps as layers are assembled. Spread 1/3 of the beef mixuture, top with some salsa and 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat layers two times ending with beef mixture, salsa and cheese.

Cover the baker, if using a casserole dish cover with foil.  Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 55 minutes or until warmed through.  Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

  1. oh yum, this looks fabulous. I should get that cookbook. I just had a party and got the deep dish baker, too! I have yet to unwrap it though! LOL
    It astounds me what can be cooked in the microwave... I always use it as a last resort!

    thanks for posting!
