Because husband doesn't like sour cream, I left it out, but I did serve it on the side for me. I prefer it that way anyway. Taco Bell serves stuffed grilled burritos and that is what I did with these. I used my panini press to grill each burritos. Yum.

The flavor balance is great. Completely satisfying. I serve the sour cream on the side, because I prefer it as a cold contrast.
