When I was growing up in Southern California, this was one of my favorite Mexican dishes. It's hard to find now that I live in the Midwest—except in my kitchen! —Kelly McCulley, Des Moines, Iowa

"LOVE this burrito recipe! I made the filling in my slow cooker on the weekend. Made the burritos during the week for a quick and tasty meal."

"slow cooker recipes should be slow cooker recipes. Big deal. . .you cook the meat in the crockpot. You still need to dirty a casserole dish and use your oven. This is like a "click bait" post on facebook. SHEESH"
