This is a go-to dish when I'm in a rush to make dinner. Preparing them in the skillet not only saves time, it gives the burritos a crispy outside and ooey, gooey inside. —Scarlett Elrod, Newnan, Georgia

I thought this was kind of bland. Maybe some taco seasoning to kick it up.

This was a fast and easy work night supper. I used a frozen corn and black bean mix. My family loved it, it was a great change from our traditional taco night.

This is such an excellent recipe! I've made it 3 times in the last month. Since I didn't have all the ingredients, and I don't like cilantro, I left out the cilantro and Dijon mustard, and substituted lime peel for lime juice. I used Carb Smart tortillas (23g fiber) and was amazed. Such a great recipe!!!
