Burrito casserole

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
Taco seasoning
Shredded Mozzarella cheese
Shredded cheddar cheese

Optional:
Sour cream
Salsa

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. 20130211-220552.jpg
Smooth out the refried beans for the next layer.

Optional: add a layer if cheese. I did a half cup of mozzarella and a half cup cheddar.20130211-221522.jpg
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. 20130211-222119.jpg
Bake for 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted. 20130211-222410.jpg
Enjoy with sour cream or salsa!
