Burrito Lasagna


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 small can black olives, sliced
  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chile peppers
  • 1 (10 ounce) can Ro*Tel
  • 2 1/2 cups red taco sauce
  • 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
  • 12 (8 inch) flour tortillas
  • 9 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté the ground beef for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté for 5 more minutes.
  4. Drain any excess fat. Add the olives (save some for the end), green chile peppers, Ro*Tel, taco sauce, and refried beans. Stir mixture thoroughly. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Spread a thin layer on the bottom of a 4-quart casserole dish. Cover with a layer of tortillas, followed by more meat mixture, then a layer of cheese. Repeat tortilla, meat, and cheese layers until all of the tortillas are used, ending with a layer of the meat and cheese on top. Sprinkle with the saved black olives.
  6. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is slightly brown and bubbly.
