Burrito Pie

I cannot for the life of me take an appetizing picture of this delicious dish. You're just going to have to trust me that it is so tasty! Burrito Pie is the first meal Mark made for me. Well, not quite but we're just going to forget about the frozen chicken breast on the george forman and the shrimp that were not deveined. This is the official first meal that Mark found the recipe for and made for me and we've made it many times since.

1 pound ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove minced garlic
small can black olives, sliced
1/2 (4 ounce) can diced green chili peppers
1 10 oz. can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (Rotel)
1 can enchilada sauce
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
6 (8 inch) flour tortillas
10 ounces shredded Colby cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute the ground beef for 5 minutes. Add the onion and garlic, and saute for 5 more minutes. Drain any excess fat, if desired. Mix in the olives, green chile peppers, tomatoes with green chile peppers, enchilada sauce and refried beans. Stir mixture thoroughly, reduce heat to low, and let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Spread a thin layer of the meat mixture in the bottom of a 4 quart casserole dish. Cover with a layer of tortillas followed by more meat mixture, then a layer of cheese. Repeat tortilla, meat, cheese pattern until all the tortillas are used, topping off with a layer of meat mixture and cheese.
  4. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cheese is slightly brown and bubbly.

This looks de-lish! What never seems to work out though is that the fam thinks the tortillas are soggy. I love it though!

Yum! This was SO good Jessie! A new favorite from Bites. :) Do you think you could freeze this easily? Any tips?

It does freeze well. I usually split it up into 2 small squares.
