My brother-in-law teases that I only know how to make five things using ground beef. I had to prove him wrong, and spicy burritos are the answer. —Kim Kenyon, Greenwood, Missouri

MY REVIEW

We loved this! Made it with no tweeking at all, I was great.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 10, 2014

This was super fast and easy. The flavor was good but next time based on the other reviews I may try chicken but will certainly add refried beans to give it a bit more complex flavor. I love beans so they will make a good recipe great.

These turned out way better than I expected. I'm a vegetarian so I used a bag of meat substitute instead of the beef. Delicious!

The whole family loved it! It was easy and quick! I doubled the recipe for lunch leftovers. Good flavor! I too used regular salsa because I didn't have the salsa verde on hand. Can't wait to make again with that! Thanks for sharing!

Loved it! Used a roasted veggie salsa since I had it on hand, the whole family rated as five star! Will try with refried beans next time. Kim, thank your brother in law for me!
