This bean bake casserole — one of my favorite childhood dishes — is a good way to clean out the leftovers in the refrigerator. Leftover meat, some grated cheese, that half-empty can of refried beans — they can all be of use here.
It’s like a Tex-Mex Midwestern casserole, with beans, meat, corn tortillas, and lots of melted cheese. It’s hard to resist.
Use this as a template and make it a different way each week. You’re planning the same dinner every week but it’s a slightly new experience each time.
