"I used green enchilada sauce rather than the picante sauce for a milder taste. Delicious!!!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 4, 2012

"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."
