Mary's Favorite Burrito Casserole


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 toe of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Ad
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 large can refried pinto beans
  • 1 can Rotel tomatoes
  • 6 burrito size flour tortillas
  • 1 small can tomato sauce
  • 1 small can green chilies
  • 1/2 pound shredded cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook ground beef and onion over medium high heat until browned and drain if needed. Add garlic, chili powder, paprika, dried oregano, dried marjoram, salt, pepper, and cumin. Stir and allow the flavors to meld together a few minutes; add water and simmer for approximately 10 minutes. Stir in refried beans and Rotel tomatoes; heat until warmed through.

Stack tortillas on a plate and cover with a damp paper towel; heat in the microwave on high about 30 seconds, just to warm for easier handling. Spray 13 x 9 inch glass baking pan with PAM and set aside. Take one tortilla and place a strip of the meat/bean mixture slightly off center on the tortilla, fold in the short side once, fold bottom up over it and continue to roll completely up. Place into baking dish, seam side down. Continue rolling the remaining tortillas. Stir the tomato sauce and green chilies together and pour mixture across all of the tortillas, primarily in the center area of the pan. Sprinkle cheese over the tomato sauce. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 30 minutes.
