Corn N Bean Burritos Recipe

Corn N Bean Burritos Recipe

This is a great summer dish because all of the cooking is done in the microwave oven, you won't heat up your kitchen. Cooked chicken, pork or extra-lean beef can easily be added to suit your family's tastes.—Carol Birkemeier, Nashville, Indiana
