Reviews for 5 Spinach Burritos
"Very Good! I used medium salsa - perfect!"
"I used green enchilada sauce rather than the picante sauce for a milder taste. Delicious!!!"
"These were good and surprisingly filling. I used fresh spinach instead of frozen. To half of the burritos I added refried beans and left out the cheese. The other half I made exactly as the recipe says. They were good both ways. Next time I would just use salsa instead of picante sauce. They are very similar and salsa is less expensive for me to buy."
"I adore this recipe! Very delicious. I twist it up a bit and grill them instead."
"VERY easy to make, and delicious. It was enough of a meal to satisfy everyone in the family. One of these and some refried beans on the side, and I was full. My daughter told me it was the best dinner ever!"
"This recipe was delicious! I only changed 2 things with this recipe: I added dry kidney beans that I had made the previous day and Newman's Own Salsa because they did not have Picante Sauce in my local stores. My husband loves this recipe! Will definitely make again, thanks Dolores for the recipe."
"I haven't made these yet but will next Friday. I've been a vegetarian for 81 years and try to find easy veggie cassaroles to make. This looks soooo good. Thanks"
"I LOVE this recipe. I usually freeze each one individually and then I have lunch for a week."
"These were good considering they didn't require many ingredients and were so easy to make. I did add a dollop of sour cream to each prior to serving. This is a recipe I would make again."
"I made this last night. I used about 8 oz of fresh spinach leaves from the garden, destemmed and chopped, and sauteed them with the onion and garlic. I served it with refried black beans which complimented the burritos well. My family loved it!"
