Big Game Day Recipes - Fuss-Free Burrito Bake Casserole Recipe

Casseroles are both hearty and economical choices when trying to feed a crowd (or a large family). Plus, when crunched for time, they’re quick to throw together and slide in the oven and can even be made ahead to put a filling, low-stress meal on the table following a busy day.

This twist on a classic Mexican dish is stuffed full of meat, onions and cheeses, sitting on top of a crescent roll dough crust. You can add even more flavor by topping it with olives, green peppers, lettuce and tomatoes then serving with a side of sour cream, chips and salsa.
