Pan Burritos

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 3 large flour tortillas (or more smaller ones)
  • 2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can refried beans

Brown the hamburger.  Stir in 1/3 of enchilada sauce.  Spread another 1/3 sauce on the bottom of a 9x9ish pan.

Place a tortilla over sauce.  Spread tortilla with 1/2 of the refried beans.  Spoon 1/2 of the meat mixture over the tortilla; sprinkle 3/4 c. cheese.

Repeat layers:  tortilla, beans, meat, cheese (3/4 c.).

Layer final tortilla; top with the rest of the sauce and cheese.  Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes.  Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.  Serve with shredded lettuce and sour cream.  Serves 6.

  1. Sounds delicious!

  2. My mother-in-law gave me the exact same recipe when I was first married. We never had them growing up, we missed out! Haven’t made them in a while, going to have to again soon 🙂

  3. Sounds good, I will add it to our menu list. Thanks!

  4. Yum! Reading stuff like this when I haven’t had supper yet is like going grocery shopping when you’re hungry. Off to go make some popcorn, since I figure that on top of chili might be a bit too much Mexican food for one day. :>)

  5. This kind of sounds like a Mexican version of lasagne. Now we know it must be great.

  6. This sounds very good! Serve it with a Mexican salad and you have a super meal. I would even freeze this for an evening I don’t feel like cooking. Thanks

  7. I think I just found dinner! We will love this at our house.

  8. This sounds easy and delicious. I will have to try it!

  9. This sounds and looks absolutely wonderful. What a great meal for a damp and chilly fall day. Have a great weekend.

  10. What a GREAT!!! recipe, sounds and looks wonderful.

  11. We DO call this Mexican Lasagne at our house… just swap out the flour tortilla for corn tortilla and add some pickled jalapenos in the layers. Yumm
