"Our family loves Mexican food, but I couldn't find a recipe for homemade burritos that we liked as much as the frozen varieties," comments Terry Ann Christensen of Roy, Utah. "So I came up with a not-too-spicy homemade sauce that dresses them up."
My family goes meatless several nights a week, and this recipe is one of our favorites.
I usually puree a can or two of chipotles in adobo and freeze in ice cube trays so I can use a small amount when I need it. —Amy Bravo, Ames, Iowa
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!”
Get your protein from these meaty burritos shared by Becky Baird of Salt Lake City, Utah. Black beans, avocado and steak slices team up are nicely seasoned with fresh cilantro, salsa and sour cream. —Rebecca Baird, Salt Lake Cty, Utah
For a nice alternative to beef and bean burritos, I use this recipe, which I discovered several years back. If I fix the chicken mixture the night before, the next day's dinner is a snap. My 14-year-old gives these yummy burritos an enthusiastic "thumbs up"!

"For a change from sandwiches, we like burritos-something many people don't consider in a brown-bag lunch," says Rhonda Cliett of Barton, Texas. "They're good cold or easy to heat if a microwave's available."
