From Sequim, Washington, Marian Platt suggests her tasty burritos for a meatless but filling meal in minutes. “They're so easy to make and great for lunch. Or top with salsa, add a side of refried beans and call it dinner!”
My cousin is of Mexican heritage, and I’ve watched her make these crunchy burritos for years. The very first time I made them for my own family, they became an instant favorite meal. They’re even better warmed up the next day in the microwave. —Debi Lane, Chattanooga, Tennessee
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
Looking for a fast family meal or single serving supper? Try these beyond-compare burritos from Janelle McEachern of Riverside, California. They're chock-full of tasty ingredients and frozen individually, so you can bake only as many as needed.
Diners meet up with plenty of flavor when they dig into Marian Platt's meatless mainstay that's bursting with cheese, rice, onion and peppers. "These burritos are a fun change of pace from traditional sandwiches," she notes from Sequim, Washington.
"We have two children who keep us busy, so I love meals I can just pull out of the freezer," writes Jennifer Shafer from Durham, North Carolina. The burritos are wrapped individually so it's easy to take out only the number you need. "I serve them with canned refried beans and Spanish rice from a boxed mix," she adds.
"My neighbor and I discovered these delicious low-fat burritos a few years ago," writes Angela Studebaker of Goshen, Indiana. "On nights my husband or I have a meeting, we can have a satisfying supper on the table in minutes."
