Burrito Casserole

This recipe came off the package of Lawry's Chimichurri Burrito seasoning.  It was gone the night I made it.  It is so easy and everyone has 2 helpings.  I made a double recipe and am glad I did! I did freeze 2 for Britt to take back to college with her but the rest were gone!
1 lb  ground beef**I used ground turkey**
1 15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 8 ounce can of tomato sauce
1 1/2 cup water
1 1.4 ounce package Lawry's Chimichurri Burrito seasoning
8 flour tortillas
1 1/2 cups shredded Mexican cheese

Brown the meat, add salt and pepper. Drain off the fat and add the rinsed and drained beans.  In a small mixing bowl mix the water, tomato sauce and Chimichurri seasoning.  Pour 1 cup of the sauce in with the meat and beans, mix well. Fill the tortillas with the mixture.  Roll the tortilla up and put, seam side down, in a greased 9 x 13 baking dish. Pour the rest of the sauce over the top and put the cheese on top of that.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until it is heated through and cheese is melted. Garnish with all the yummy Mexican fixin's! Enjoy~
