Now back to the recipe for this burrito casserole. Are you curious as to what a burrito casserole consists of ? Well as you may know casseroles are the universal way of turning any meal into a one pot version that essentially combines meat, veggies, and cheese to make a nice and simple scoop and eat meal. Burritos feature refried beans and taco mix seasoning to give it that distinctive flavor. This recipe also calls for a can of cream of mushroom soup which is a bit unexpected but also lends that nice and rich mushroom flavor that will take this recipe to the next level. Of course these canned soups can be a bit salty so make sure to watch how much additional salt you put into the recipe, since you don't want it to be too overwhelming either.

If you're someone who likes a little extra kick to your food then there's also the option of putting in a little bit of hot sauce to perk it up. In fact spiciness is said to help digestion since it helps you to break down the food. Now I'm not sure if this is true but it's an interesting and fun food fact if it is! Regardless of how you choose to enjoy this burrito casserole, with ingredients like ground beef, refried beans, onions, and delicious cheddar cheese... it's hard not to get totally hooked on it!
