Beef and Bean Burrito Casserole are burritos smothered with queso dip and then baked to meld all of the elements together. You customize your own serving by adding tomatoes, onions, guacamole, sour cream, and so on.
This beef and bean burrito casserole was made using my homemade flour tortillas. You, on the other hand, can use whatever tortillas you prefer. Store bought tortillas are perfect. I also use the Instant Pot Queso that I had made a couple days before that. Consider trying my Cheesy Bean Dip. You do not have to use these in order to make this. Substitute wherever you like.
