Mexican Casserole

This is one of my oldest son's favorites and considering he can be finicky that tells you it is good!

3 pounds ground beef
2 pks taco seasoning
4 large burrito shells
1 large can refried beans
16 oz sour cream
1 jar your favorite salsa
2-3 cups shredded cheese

Brown, drain and season ground beef with taco seasoning. Layer a rectangular casserole dish with the following. Burrito shell, refried beans, seasoned beef, sour cream, salsa, and cheese. Continue to layer until you fill your dish. On the last layer use a burrito shell and top with cheese. Then bake at 350 degrees until hot and bubbly and the cheese is melted, about 20-30 minutes.

Want to make it healthier? Use lean ground beef or ground white turkey. Make your own taco seasoning minus the salt or MSG. Use the whole wheat burrito shells. Use fat free beans, sour cream and cheese. You could also top with shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, onion and avocado. Need less zip? Omit the taco seasoning and salsa.
