    I love this recipe! I've made it several times. To save time I use the potatoes o'brien which already has the onion and peppers in them. I also added a little bit of cumin and garlic. Could you include the nutrition facts on this recipe?

    wow, these are so good. I didn't put the black beans in because I didn't have any, but it was great. When I made it however it made about 20 burritos rather than only 8.

    My husband and I love these burritos, and I always make extra to put in the freezer. I do not use the hash browns but add extra rice instead and add a little hot sauce for extra flavor.
