Beautiful. Bountiful. Brilliant. Beguiling. These are just a few of the words you'll think of when you scoop up a helping of Burrito Bake onto your plate. A buttery, flaky crust of crescent dough stands in for the tortilla, but besides that, everything here is a Tex-Mex favorite: savory taco meat, hearty refried beans, melty sharp cheese, and bright green peppers. You can even top your Burrito Bake with your classic filling favorites for the full flavor effect! Baking your burritos might just become your new favorite way of making them!
