Burrito Bake

Everyone can just agree that I suck at taking
pictures of food. Seriously. It is way
 tastier than this picture makes it seem.
Burrito Bake

So, this is basically the burrito form of a lasagna. It's a layered dish and it's quite tasty. I haven't come across this anywhere else on the internet (to my knowledge) so this might be a Seeber original. WHAT. (I know.)


  • 1 package of 8 wheat tortilla shells (the large variety)
  • 1 can of fat free refried beans (16 oz)
  • 1 can of green chilies; the chopped and peeled variety (4 oz)
  • 1 package of Knorr Spanish rice (or Mexican rice)
  • 1 cup of salsa (spice level - your preference)
  • 3 cooked & shredded chicken breasts (Or 1 large turkey breast works as well)
  • 1 1/2 bags of shredded Mexican cheese
  • 1 can of enchilada sauce

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Prepare Knorr Spanish rice according to package directions.
  3. While rice is cooking, spray a 9" x 13" pan (I used glass) with cooking spray and arrange 2-3 tortilla shells on the bottom of the pan. Make sure the bottom is almost completely covered with tortilla shells. I broke my shells in half so I could completely cover the bottom a bit better rather than leaving them whole.
  4. Spread refried beans in an even layer over tortilla shells. Spread green chilies over the refried beans.
  5. Once the rice is prepared, mix the salsa in with the rice. Then add it as the next layer in the pan (make sure to spread it evenly).
  6. Spread shredded chicken (or turkey) in an even layer in the pan.
  7. Spread 1 bag of shredded cheese in an even layer in the pan.
  8. Spread 2-3 tortilla shells as the last layer and make sure the top is completely covered with tortilla shells.
  9. Spread enchilada sauce over the entire dish.
  10. Bake for 35 minutes at 375 degrees.
  11. After the 35 minutes of baking, take the dish out of the oven. Spread the remaining half bag of shredded cheese on top. Put the dish back into the oven until the cheese is melted (I usually turn my oven off and just let the cheese melt as the oven cools down).

Done! All the delicious things!

Some toppings that go well with it are sour cream, guacamole, or just salsa. I think it makes about 12 servings depending on how you cut it up.

Any questions or suggestions? You can always feel free to leave a eh?


Happy cooking!
