"This recipe needs some help. I added some onion and a little garlic salt but it wasn't enough. Too much cheese you couldn't taste the crab."

"Would only make this again with many changes. Way to much cheese it overpowered the crab. The only real flavor was in the salsa."

"These burritos are so quick and easy and so yummy. Since they are so simple I think that it would be easy to add to them according to your own taste, like the previous reviewer did."
