    Another recipe I grew up on. So quick and easy to put together. 1 cup of each cheese is plenty. We like topping with all of the suggested toppings.

    My family loves this dish! Sometimes I add crushed Doritos after baking to give it an extra cheesy crunch.

    Crescent rolls?? There is nothing burrito about crescent rolls. The rest sounds okay - go with tortillas as duckyD said and it might be good.

    Good recipe. I didn't want a thick crust so, I used large tortillas.

    I made this and followed the recipe using both cheeses. The recipe calls for one to two cups. I opted to use 2 cups of each. It was delicious. I will definitely make this recipe again but next time I plan to try it with one cup of each cheese. We did top with shedded lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, and sour cream.

    Didn't have mozzarella, used only cheddar and it was wonderful!

    I used leftover sloppy joe and leftover spaghetti meat sauce and used mozzarella cheese. Still yummy!

    Made per recipe but did not use mozz cheese only cheddar because most burritos don't have Italian cheese only Mexican cheese. When it was done we added Aldi sour cream... which by the way is the absolute bomb, little salad bar fresh salsa from Aldi, canned green chilies, and canned sliced black olives. You can actually make this slightly low fat by omitting the bread on the bottom. Excellent to make for game night or kids sleepover... neither of which apply to me since I'm single and hate Sports LOL.

    Delicious and easy to make. I added salsa to the meat and beans because it looked dry. I used taco and cheddar cheese. I then topped it with sour cream, guacamole, lettuce, tomato and black olives and cilantro. Will definately be saving this recipe!

    Took about 25 minutes - smelled and tasted wonderful! I used a can of corn and beans instead of refried beans. Sour cream plus the other listed toppings are great on top. It is quite filling. I would like to make it again this way and maybe try to make it sometime with chicken.
