Cheesy Burrito Casserole

Printable version
I used to eat frozen burritos like they were going out of style when I was in college. They can be eaten on the run or smothered in salsa and cheese and gobbled up while watching the news.

I was browsing through the freezer isle at Meijer and came across the frozen burrito section – I was instantly transported back to my college days. I knew I had to buy a package and come up with something simple.

I put the entire package of eight frozen burritos in a baking pan, mixed together a can of cheddar cheese soup and a jar of salsa for a sauce and topped it off with pepper jack cheese. I shredded the cheese myself from an 8 ounce block because it seems to melt better than packaged shredded cheese.

The end result was a surprisingly tasty dinner that takes about thirty minutes to make. 

BEHIND THIS BITE
This is the sixth recipe in my series of weeknight bites. Each time I go to the store, I see something new that inspires another recipe. I’m going to have to stop looking for a few days because I have enough stuff in the freezer now to make 3 or 4 recipes. I must discipline myself to empty my reserves before I go back to the new-found culinary gold mine known as the freezer isle.

Eat well, cook often ...
