"Love this recipe. Yummy burritos. Would make more often if my kids were rice fans."
"Very good! I didn't use the green onions or garlic (didn't have them on hand), and I added black beans and corn and used whole wheat tortillas. Excellent!"
"I've made this recipe for years--ever since it first came out in TOH's cookbook. I serve it with a recipe that combines lime jello and cream cheese."
"I've made this recipe dozens of times, and everyone who tastes it, loves it! It does take a little time to prepare, but it's well worth it."
"My family absolutely loves this recipe! It is one of our all-time favorites from TOH. They request it often."
"The sodium and fat content are a bit high. I substituted low salt broth, and used far less cheese than called for. I also used a salsa with a lower salt content, and used brown rice. Yummy!"
"I use yellow onion and salsa instead of the picante. THESE ARE YUMMY! Guests love these and request the recipe! :) Nancy"
"We have these quite often. If I plan on roasting a turkey,I use the leftovers to make this. I make a double batch and our grown children will have supper that night for their families. Easy and uses items I always have on hand."
