Looking for an easy dinner? Take advantage of frozen foods to shorten your prep time in the evening by using this recipe to dress up frozen burritos. This yummy Tex-Mex frozen burrito bake starts with frozen burritos and is topped with a delicious creamy sauce and melted cheddar cheese. It goes beyond just making frozen burritos taste better – it will actually become a family favorite!
⏲️ Time needed
Total time for this recipe is about 45 minutes, but almost all of that is baking time so it’s an easy dinner recipe for busy weeknights.
Start with frozen bean burritos as the time-saving basis for this easy casserole, but you can switch that up if you prefer a different burrito filling. I like the way the bean filling tastes with the creamy gravy, so I always use bean burritos. Cream of mushroom soup, green chilis, a little milk and some cheddar cheese complete the ingredients, but I do like to top mine with chopped cilantro because everything is better with cilantro!
This is one of those meals for which I like to keep ingredients on hand – I always have milk and cheese, so if I make sure to have frozen burritos, cream of mushroom soup, and green chilis in the pantry and freezer, I know I can put this together easily on a night when I am out of ideas and energy.
Making Frozen Burrito Casserole is super easy – just spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and place the frozen burritos in the baking dish.
In a bowl, combine the soup, milk, and green chilies, mixing well. Pour the soup mixture over the burritos and top with shredded cheese.
Cover the casserole with aluminum foil (try not to let the foil touch the top of the cheese) and bake at 375°F for 35-40 minutes or until heated though and cheese is melted.
