The Country Cook: Bisquick Burrito Bake

Bisquick Burrito Bake

Well, I gotta say, I was absolutely thrilled with how many of y'all loved the Bisquick Chicken Enchilada Bake! In fact, I got a bunch of emails from folks wondering what other kind of Bisquick-inspired dinners I could share. The main point I heard over and over was - it's gotta be easy and not a lot of ingredients. I hear ya and I get that! I'm your gal for simple, affordable and no-crazy-ingredient meals. It's nice just to be able to throw open your pantry and put something together quickly. So all you gotta do is add some sort of meat to the mix. I got you covered!
So I kept with the Mexican-inspired meal theme and just switched it up a bit. This time, we're doing burritos! This bakes up beautifully and hey, who doesn't love a bunch of ooey gooey melted cheese? Again, this one can be tailored to your family's particular tastes. Throw in anything your family would love. Or set out a bunch of toppings and let your family serve themselves.
I'm a big fan of buffet-style eating. I just put everything on the counter and let everyone go down the line, fixing their own plates, and then we all make our way back to the table. Saves just a bit of time and energy and who couldn't use a bit more of that?! Then I make them all do the dishes. Hee Hee.
I saw a sign once and I'd love to make it for my home, it said: "I love your hugs. I love your kisses. But what I really want is for someone to do the dishes."
So let's dig in!
1 cup Bisquick
1 can refried beans
1/2 cup water
1 lb ground chuck
1 (8 ounce) jar taco sauce (not salsa)
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Spray an 8x8 (or 9 x9)baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Begin browning and crumbling ground beef in a medium skillet over medium heat. Once fully cooked, drain excess grease.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix Bisquick, water, and refried beans together.
Spread this "crust "mixture into your prepared baking dish.
Combine cooked (and drained) ground beef with taco sauce (I just do this right in the pan so as not to create any more dirty dishes.)
Spread ground beef mix over crust mix.
Sprinkle the top with shredded cheese.
Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.
Bake at 375F degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Cook's Notes: Recipe can easily be doubled. Some suggested toppings are: sour cream, lettuce, diced tomato and olives. It's perfect served with a fresh salad!
