- A chopped onion
- Sour cream and chopped cilantro (optional)
- A pair of chopped garlic cloves
- Six quartered flour tortillas
- A pair of tablespoons of olive oil
- Grated cheddar cheese (two cups)
- ¾ pounds of lean ground beef
- A teaspoon of ground cumin
- Half a cup of parboiled long grain rice
- A tablespoon of chili powder
- Nineteen-ounce can of rinsed and drained black beans
- A pair of teaspoons of chopped and seeded jalapeño pepper
- Fourteen-ounce can of diced tomatoes
- A ¾ cup of either water or chicken broth
After you’ve made sure your rack is in the middle position of the oven, preheat it to 450°F. Use a large oven-friendly skillet to soften the garlic and onion in the oil over medium-high heat and then add the meat, using a wooden spoon to break it up. Cook until it becomes golden brown.
Follow by adding the spices, rice, jalapeño, beans, broth, and tomato and then season with pepper and salt. Cover it up and cook for about fifteen minutes over medium-low heat or until all of the liquid is gone and the rice is cooked. Make sure to occasionally stir.
Sprinkle the cheese over the rice and then bake for about ten minutes or until the cheese has sufficiently melted. Allow it to cool for another ten minutes. While it’s cooling, place the pieces of tortilla on a baking sheet and bake them for at least five minutes or until they become crisp and slightly browned.
If you chose to use it, use the cilantro to sprinkle it on the burrito casserole. Serve with the optional sour cream and some tortilla chips and you’re ready to enjoy a celebratory meal.
