Southwestern Burrito Bowl Bake

Casseroles and bakes are something I never really think of when planning out our dinners for the week. It’s a shame because they’re so easy to throw together and the leftovers are perfect for the following days lunch! However, the other day I was craving something spicy and full of flavor but that wasn’t smothered in sauce. This southwestern burrito bowl was perfect! It’s loaded with all sorts of delicious veggies and topped with cheese, tomato, green onions and cilantro.

Making this dish could not be easier. It’s basically all chopping, dicing and mincing! Once your ingredients are all prepped out the veggies need to cook and then everything gets layered in to bake. After about 30 minutes at 375 degrees, you’ve got a pan full of cheesy southwestern deliciousness!

This bake is perfect for game days, parties or large gatherings. It’s best when served with a giant bowl of chips or a stack of warm tortillas! We topped ours with some fresh avocado and a drizzle of hot sauce- it was sooo good!

This easy and filling recipe has got me hooked on one-dish meals! I can’t wait to make a pan of my favorite rustic chicken and vegetable cobbler or my baked rigatoni with mini meatballs! What are some of your favorite casseroles, bakes or one-dish meals? I’m always on the hunt for dinner ideas!
