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 Food.com, 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!

Beef Nacho Bake

  Though the ingredients to this recipe are simple, the flavors of the end result, are full on complex!  You won’t be able to quite put your finger on the flavors, but it sure tastes good!

  Guess where this recipe comes from?

  From my mom’s recipe box!  Tucked between sections, is a 1980’s Miracle Whip Label featuring this very recipe!  It MUST be good, because our family has been making it ever since.  🙂

Mrs. B’s Creamy Tacos

We had a very special guest stop in this summer, Mrs. Baker from The Better Baker.  She even COOKED for us!  A delicious recipe from her amazing cookbook, page 42 to be exact.  She whipped out this meal in 20 minutes, no kidding!  Destiny & Tylan had 2 bowls and they all cheered when I told them there was enough leftover to have it again.  🙂
