Whenever I’m stuck in a rut over what to make for dinner, I like to create casseroles. Tonight I created a Burrito Casserole. It turned out pretty good! As usual, by just watching specific brands I made it gluten free.
2 chicken breasts (I have started to use Trader Joe’s precut grilled and seasoned strips- saves time and they have a great flavor)
2 burrito/tortilla shells
1 can refried beans
2 cups rice
Shredded Mozzarella cheese
Shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 375. Cut the chicken into cubes and sprinkle on some taco seasoning.
Bake for 30 minutes. I took it out and stirred half way through.
While the chicken is cooking, cook the rice.
Once the rice and chicken are cooked, place a tortilla on the bottom of a 9×9 pan or casserole.
Smooth out the refried beans for the next layer.
Pour the pieces of cooked chicken over the beans.
Next spread the rice over the chicken.
Optional: add a layer if cheese. I did a half cup of mozzarella and a half cup cheddar.
I then sprinkled more taco seasoning over the cheese.
The second tortilla goes on top. I tucked/pressed the sides in to make sure it was secure.
I spread a little salsa across the top with some more cheese.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
Enjoy with sour cream or salsa!
