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.
