We like meat so I added 1/2 lb. of hamburger to this recipe. It was really good. And, no, my flour tortillas did not get soggy as suggested in other posts. I would do this again.

Actually as a Hispanic the worst thing to do is use flour tortillas, we use corn tortillas for dishes like these. Flour tortillas when they get soggy or wet revert back to the dough that was used to make them which is very bad for indigestion it's like swallowing gum.

These were very good and enjoyed by my whole family. I used whole wheat tortillas and replaced the picante sauce in the filling with salsa and the salsa on top with enchilada sauce but I know it would also be great as written.

This was so easy and super yummy! Needs more kosher salt and I used a combination of hot sauce and the juice of one line instead of picante sauce.

Made per recipe. Taste was good but trying to get a 1/2 cup mixture in a 6 inch tortillas and roll with ends tucked in is crazy...did not work! I also had a fair amout of mixture leftover. Doubt that I would make again.

I printed this recipe, quite some time back, but never made it. My wife and I are cutting way back on meat in our diet, and I found this in my recipe book. I'm sorry I waited so long to make it. It was great!

Just made this tonight and it was absolutely wonderful. As another person mentioned I put enchilada sauce in place of the salsa and it was great!!!!

WOW! I am one of those people who plans meals around what kind of meat to cook... my main reason for trying this recipe was to use up some leftover brown rice I had in the fridge... I was blown away by the taste, how easy it was to make, and the fact that I didn't miss the meat in it AT ALL! This is going into my regular recipe rotation, love it!
