My family loved this recipe.

Easy Baked Burrito Casserole

1 lb. ground beef

1 small onion

1 pkg. taco seasoning

1 can refried beans

1 can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted

1/2 cup sour cream

1 pkg. large flour tortillas

2-1/2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese

Preheat oven to 350°.

Cook meat and onion in a large nonstick skillet and drain. Add taco seasoning and refried beans and heat through.

Add the soup and sour cream and heat.

Tear enough tortillas to cover the bottom of a 9x12 baking dish. Top the tortillas with the meat mixture and top with cheese.

Bake 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the mixture is bubbly.
