Creamy Burrito Casserole Recipe

By the time 5 o’clock rolls around in the evening, I’m tired and usually not in the mood to spend a long time in the kitchen cooking dinner. I like to make easy recipes that are warm and filling and that my family will all enjoy. I discovered this burrito casserole recipe several years ago and it’s been a family favorite since. It takes about 15 minutes to put together and another 20 minutes in the oven, so you can have dinner ready in under an hour.

I know many  people aren’t fans of using the cream of … soups in their cooking but I use them occasionally and this recipe does use one can. You can use cream of mushroom or cream of chicken (and maybe even cream of potato, though I haven’t tried it).

I know that the picture may not look too appetizing but I promise this casserole tastes delicious. You could serve it with a salad (gotta get those veggies in!) or some salsa or avocado dip and tortilla chips. I hope you’ll give this recipe a try and your family enjoys it as much as mine.
