Very appealing recipe. The burrito mix is delicious and makes enough to feed a family. It's got a kick, even with the mild salsa that I used!

I used ground beef and wrapped them in wax paper first to prevent the foil from sticking. Removed from both foil and wax paper wrapped in paper towel and microwaved for 2 minutes for a quick and easy meal.

This recipe is so easy & good. It's nice to be able to pull a quick lunch or dinner out of the freezer when I'm short on time.

Simple, cheap, and good! I omitted the burrito seasoning and chilies, just using chicken, salsa, and beans.
