Creamy Burrito Casserole

  This casserole reminded me a lot of Tijuana Torte we already make and love, but I went ahead, because the addition of refried beans intrigued me.

  I found this recipe at, and the end result was nothing short of amazing!  {I changed it up just a bit.}  We loved the heartiness the whole wheat tortillas and refried beans bring to the final dish. And talk about quick, the whole thing came together in no time flat!
