Creamy Burrito Casserole from Lydia

2lbs Ground Beef

1 Cup Onion

10-12 Burrito Flour Tortillas

1 Packet Taco Seasoning

2 Cups Cheese, shredded

½ Cup Water

1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup

16oz Refried Beans

8oz Sour Cream

16oz Salsa

Cook Ground Beef and Onions until done, drain.

Add Water, Taco Seasoning, and Refried Beans. Continue to cook over medium heat for 5-10 minutes.

Put meat mixture and a little cheese (save some cheese for the top) into each Tortilla. Wrap like a burrito and place seam side down in 9x13 dish.

Mix Soup, Sour Cream, and Salsa in bowl. Store in freezer safe container.

Place remaining Cheese in small ziplock bag, freeze for later.

(Sauce and cheese are stored separate from dish when freezing to prevent burritos from getting soggy)

Freezer Instructions: Use heavy duty foil to cover. Layer a couple times to avoid freezer burn.

Cooking Instructions: Thaw Burritos, Sauce, and Cheese. Pour Sauce over Burritos, top with Cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, covered. Bake uncovered for an additional 30 minutes.
**Please Note, if this meal is prepared and served the same day (not frozen and thawed later) the Cooking Instructions would be as follows: Bake uncovered for 20-30 minutes.
