No beans about it: Nothing but beef, cheese, garlic and sauce is stuffed inside these baked burritos. My family is very picky, so I came up with these to satisfy everyone—and it worked! —Donna Holter, Centennial, Colorado

"It is a great idea. I am somewhat of a vegetarian so I modified it some. I used 1/2 cup pinto beans, out of a well

drained 15 oz. can. 3/4 cup of plain tomato sauce with herbs I threw in. I could of used 1/2 sauce. I heated the
sauce in my 1100 watt microwave for 30 seconds. I thought of putting the beans in, and heated 10 min more. I am sure it could of been heated more than that. I used Rudie's Spelt tortillas (because I can't have soy).
I will play with the recipe a bit more over time. only reason I would put in less sauce is that it was a bit drippy.
The recipe is a KEEPER!"

"Was okay by itself. A bit on the bland side. The second time I made this, I used half ground beef and half Italian sausage, and it was MUCH better."

"quick and easy. I added an onion to the meat while cooking. Also, I increased the amount of marinara sauce slightly. Served them with sour cream on the side. Not bad for a quick meal."

"Tortillas get to crunchy in the oven with no sauce over the top and we did not care for the flavor. They needed less cheese and more Italian seasoning."
