I made up this recipe many years ago... it is easy... very tasty... and a really good comfort food!

This is one of those meals that I am constantly asked for the recipe, and asked to bring it to gatherings.

***Sometimes we also add browned ground beef.

*** Sometimes we don't put the extras on... depends on what is in the house and what we are in the mood for...

How to Make Frozen Burrito Casserole ! OLAY !

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2Put water in a saucepan, add the onion and peppers. Boil until cooked well. Add the spices and the spaghetti sauce. Simmer 5 minutes to blend flavors. Set aside.
  • 3Spray a baking pan (9x13) with cooking spray. Put just enough sauce to barely cover the bottom of the pan. Set aside.
  • 4Heat your oil for frying. Fry two or three at a time of the frozen burritos. Place them on a paper towel lined dish to cool. When all are done, cut the burritos across in 1/2 inch rounds. When one is done being cut, set the pieces in the pan in a row, push pieces together, separate each piece from each other just slightly (This allows the sauce to get between each piece). Fill the pan (pan should be full and spaces between each piece, but if you need to push them together a bit tighter to fit them all in, or looser to fill the pan... that is ok).
  • 5Pour the remaining sauce over the cut burritos in the pan.
  • 6Top with shredded cheese.
  • 7Bake for 35 minutes until golden and bubbly. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving. Top with the extras if desired.
  • 8Serve and enjoy!
