Tasty Tuesday Burrito Pie!

Looks like Donna has sent me another great recipe! Just wish I could find the time to make it. Maybe when I get back from Orlando. I'm leaving early this morning, but I'll check in as soon as I get to my room and get my computer set up and back online.



  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 (2 ounce) can black olives, sliced
  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chili peppers
  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar taco sauce
  • 2 (16 ounce) cans refried beans
  • 12 (8 inch) flour tortillas
  • 9 ounces shredded Colby cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute the ground beef for 5 minutes. Add the onion and garlic, and saute for 5 more minutes. Drain any excess fat, if desired. Mix in the olives, green chile peppers, tomatoes with green chile peppers, taco sauce and refried beans. Stir mixture thoroughly, reduce heat to low, and let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Spread a thin layer of the meat mixture in 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, cheese pattern until all the tortillas are used, topping off with a layer of meat mixture and cheese.
  4. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cheese is slightly brown and bubbly.
Here's another great review of Hero!


  1. I love that review and the way she said "lapped it up". Hero is starting to get very liked all around hm? :D

    Donna always has such great sounding recipes. I really need to start making some XD

    As for the hunk...

    Well he does have some sexy eyes :D And his grin isn't too bad either lol

  2. Nice eyes, great smile, even better recipe!

    Hope you enjoy your stay. Keep us in the loop! thanks.

  3. Have a Great Trip. Take lots of pictures. Tip the room service!!!
    And yes, another good review. Woohoo. And this guy is pretty yummy. Maybe we can layer the sauce and cheese on him. And lick and nibble alittle. OOPs, I better get my breakfast. I'm getting ready to eat him.

  4. Hey Cheryl! Guess you're on your way to Orlando. I hope the trip wasn't too painful! I love the little quirky smile on today's hunk! And I really can't wait to try this dish. My family loves anything Mexican-ish.

    Looking forward to the daily dish Cheryl!

  5. Today's hunk eyes look to me as if they are asking questions like, "Is that Burrito Pie really ALL for me AND you're my dessert?"

  6. Oh, forgot to say the latest HERO review is terrific. I posted a note to tell the reviewer how much I agreed with her about all your books and that I was jealous because she's already read HERO and I haven't...YET:)

  7. Good afternoon, ladies and greetings from sunny Orlando! I got here without a hitch. No sign of Marie yet, but I may go in search of food!!! Just looking at the hunk and and the burrito pie is making me hungry!!!!

  8. So glad to hear that your travel was worry free and that the hotel wifi works! What would we do without hearing from you for a week. Yikes!

    Have fun! Hope you found something really good to eat!

  9. Call Room Service for crying out loud!!!!
