Mexican Rice and Chicken Burrito with Black Beans, Roast Peppers and Fresh Cilantro
Majorly Upgrade Frozen Burritos By Way Of A Simple, Tasty Casserole
By Crystal Antonace
If you have extra dinner prep time and want to try a new way of cooking frozen burritos, turning them into a mouthwatering casserole may just be the upgrade you’re looking for.
Coat a non-stick casserole dish with oil and add a small amount of your favorite enchilada sauce to the base of the dish. Then, unwrap your burritos and place them in the sauce.
Add as many as you want, leaving a small amount of space between each burrito for extra sauce and cheese. Four to five burritos will likely fit in an 11-inch by 7-inch baking dish.
From here, top the burritos with the remaining enchilada sauce and add some salsa, or top them with a mixture of the remaining enchilada sauce and salsa.
Bake your burritos in a 375-degree Fahrenheit oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Once heated throughout, add a generous amount of shredded cheese on top and melt it in the oven.
Bulk up this tasty meal by topping them with seasoned ground beef or shredded chicken. Add pickled onions, sour cream, lime juice, and chopped cilantro for extra freshness.
