Hey guys. Happy hump day! 😉 I actually hate that saying so don’t ask why I used it. I’m just glad it’s Wednesday I guess. Tomorrow night Kale and I are going to watch a live version of Thriller out at the Tuacahn amphitheater. I’ve heard it’s really amazing and that there are live ‘zombies’ that come out into the audience. That creeps me out just a bit. I hope they don’t come up and bug me… ha!
I’m pretty excited about today’s recipe. It’s a good one. This is called a BAKED BURRITO CASSEROLE and was officially declared Kelsey’s new favorite dinner the night we had it. 🙂
Layers of flour tortillas, beans, meat and cheese are all inside this comforting dish. It’s a busy Moms dream come true on a hectic week night! It comes together quickly yet it sure doesn’t taste like it. It really is delicious! I topped ours off with chopped green onion, lettuce, tomato and sour cream. Y.U.M.M.O
