"We love this recipe. I would double so we could have leftovers. And I don't but as much sauce in the pan."

"I love this hybred recipe! It's a great combination and I just wish I'd thought of it. It does remind me more of a cross between a Burrito and an Enchilada, but, as the famous Chef said, it doesn't hurt my feelings if you want to call it by another name. :) I would double this for the two of us, though. Or maybe make it a Super by adding some Mexican/Spanish rice in with the meat and beans."
