Burrito (Chimichurri) Casserole
I originally made this recipe using a test-market product from Lawry's seasonings. They called it Chimichurri Casserole. It was incredibley delicious. Since I wasn't sure if they would ever produce the mix, I recreated it using burrito seasoning. Well, good news!! You can now buy Lawry's Chimichurri Casserole seasoning at your local grocery store. I feel confident that anyone can get it because I can and I live in a tiny little town. Run out and buy some today. If you liked the Burrito Casserole version, you are going to LOVE the Chimichurri!!
1 pkg burrito/chimichurri seasoning
1 1/2 cups water
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 lb ground beef (I have used ground turkey and ground venison with great results)
1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
8 flour tortillas *sometimes you need a couple more, it just depends on how full you stuff them :)
1 cup shredded cheese * I always use more than this
3.) Heat the tortillas according to the package directions. Spoon 1/2 cup of the meat mixture into each tortilla.
4.) Bake in a preheated 350* oven for 15 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.
Our family gets 2 meals out of this dish, or 1 meal and a couple lunches for myself and Jayme.
