Brief Burritos Recipe

With three children in school, evenings are often hectic and short on time—especially during the holiday season. I can put this dish together after school and still have time to run back to town for evening activities. Best of all, the kids love it. —Ginger Burow, Fredericksburg, Texas

"So easy to make and they were delicious! I browned a little bit of onion along with the beef and added a teaspoon of taco mix to the beef. I forgot to add the chili sauce but they were so tasty without it so I didn't miss that. This one is a keeper!"
