Bean and Honey Burrito Casserole

Bean and Honey Burrito Casserole

Red 1

"I have been trying for years to duplicate my favorite burrito from my favorite south Florida Mexican restaurant. I started making it in casserole form and was pretty happy with this one, a combination of beans with a sweet and creamy sauce. I have many variations of this, but this is the basic idea behind it. Serve with a side of chopped lettuce and tomatoes. "

I was excited to try this recipe out, as I've been wanting different chicken recipes. I was hesitant about the honey and mustard, but figured it must be an amazing flavors since most have liked it. I was wrong. It was ok. If you don't really like a sweetness to your dinner, then definitely skip this one. I agree with another reviewer about the nice mix of chicken/rice/beans/veggies, but just didn't like the honey mustard sauce. Perhaps I'll keep the filling, but change the sauce to something different.


EXCELLENT DISH AND SOO EASY. I did make 4 minor changes: (1) used whole wheat tortillas (2) baked as burritos, not as a casserole, (3) instead of mixing the sour cream/honey/mustard mix in dish I drizzled it in the middle of the burrito b4 I rolled it and then also on top of the burrito, and (4) added a little salsa to the top of the burritos. I only used about 1/4 - 1/3 of the honey/mustard/sour cream mixture .... i think the dish would have been WAY too sweet using the entire mixture. The recipe really is awesome, easy and healthy!!


Absolutely delicious dish!! There was a delicious dichotomy of sweet and savory flavors, everything melting together so perfectly! My family is hard to please but everyone, young and old, LOVED this dish. Fabulous!!
