My Nana’s Simple Burrito Casserole


3 to 4 My Nana’s Bakery Fresh Flour Tortillas
1 to 1 1/2 lbs ground beef or turkey
1 can chicken broth, heated in shallow pan
1 package shredded cheese, Mexican blend or cheddar
1 cup salsa
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste
My Nana’s Tortilla chips for topping


Brown ground beef in large skillet. Drain and rinse beef and return to skillet. Add salsa and seasonings. Stir and simmer until thoroughly mixed. Spray a casserole dish with a non-stick cooking spray. Place a small amount of the beef mixture on the bottom of the casserole. Quickly dip a flour tortilla into warmed chicken broth and place on top of beef. Continue layering beef, cheese, flour tortilla, etc. ending with cheese. Place a couple of handfuls of crumbled corn tortilla chips on top. Bake at 350° for 20 to 30 minutes or until top begins to brown and casserole is bubbly. Serve with sour cream, salsa, shredded lettuce, and chopped tomato.

*If you like it hot, add sliced jalapeños to the beef mixture or just layer them in.
