Burrito Pie
Feel free to customize it with your favorite toppings.

2 lbs. ground beef
1 yellow onion, super fine dice
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 15 oz. cans of refried beans
1 15 oz. can of fire roasted tomatoes, blended in blender
1 4 oz. can of green chiles
3/4 cup of store bought salsa
3 Tbsp. of Rockin Robins taco seasoning
4 – 5 cups of spanish rice
1 lb. mild cheddar cheese, grated
6 to 8 flour tortillas

Optional Garnishes:

sour cream
sliced olives
chopped jalapeno


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Make the spanish rice a head of time.

In a large frying pan, brown the ground beef and onion until no longer pink. Break up the ground beef as it cooks. Drain excess grease.

Add the garlic, fire roasted tomato, salsa, taco seasoning, and green chiles. Stir until well combined. Add 1/2 cup of water if the mixture seems dry and you need moisture to dissolve the taco seasoning.

Add the refried beans and stir until combined. Simmer for 20 minutes.

Use an oven proof 9 x 13 dish or larger.

Place a thin layer of bean/beef mixture to cover the bottom of dish.
Place a layer of flour tortillas on top of it. It’s fine if they over lap a bit. Cut small pieces of tortilla to fill in any gaps.

Next place a thin layer of spanish rice over the tortillas, followed by another layer of the bean/beef mixture. The add a layer of cheese on top of the bean/beef mixture.

Now repeat the layers until you fill the dish. Always end with the bean/beef layer topped with a final layer of cheese. Place a bit more cheese on the final layer so it’s nice and cheesy.

Place in the oven at 350 degrees F., uncovered for 20 to 30 minutes or until everything is pipping hot and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Serve with your favorite garnishes like sour cream and guacamole!

  1. thank your son for getting rid of the chuckle. I don't like anything stringy or chuckle .my son hates onions but I have hid them by dicing them small for years now, It's the texture like long onions when they get soft is nasty to pull out of a recipe when you have a texture problem.

  2. I cannot find this recipe anywhere on your web-site. I searched for Burrito Pie & then when that didn't work, I searched for Mexican Casserole & still no luck. Can you provide the link where this is located please?

  3. Love watching and trying your recipes,
    I often find I add a plant based or more wholesome take to the whole recipe but I love your seasonings and approach! Your dad is very proud of you.

  4. Hi, so I really like your recipe and probably going to make it this weekend. I was wandering though, do you have to use fire roasted tomatoes? Can you buy a just a can of tomatoes that are already crushed? I'm not into very spicy food. Which is also why I probably will leave out the jalapeno and can of green chiles.
    I also wanted to ask how it cuts.

  5. I made this for my family yesterday and it was INCREDIBLE! After reading the comments I decided to serve it on a bed of shredded lettuce and later even added lime juice to the lettuce which made the whole meal POP! As you suggested in the comments section, I used corn tortillas deep fried in oil for a few seconds instead of using flour tortillas. Quick fried corn tortillas have an AWESOME flavor. The next day we added nacho chips to it. My kids also don't like whole tomatoes in it so thanks for the idea of blending them. I only used 1-2 oz of green chiles since my kiddos don't like them much either. Thank you for sharing your recipes!
