Reviews for Smothered Burritos
"This is a good recipe to use as an idea maker. A few changes I made are as fallows 1) needs onions. 2) Corn tortillas instead of flour. Corn tortillas don't get soggy like flour ones do. 3) Homemade red enchilada sauce and cancel the Verde and add fresh chopped jalapenos instead. And I also like to add sliced black olives to mine. I could tell by just reading the list of ingredients there would be no heat and very little flavor, but with the added onion and my homemade sauce, my creation turned out pretty good. Only reason this got 2 stars is for the ideas it gave me, otherwise it would have been 1 star."
"So, where is the spice???? This is very benign. Any number of additions would add real spice to make these "spicy","
"I was sure with so few ingredients these would really lack flavor....Not a problem! Perfect as written, no changes needed."
"We liked this recipe, it's a keeper. I couldn't find green enchilada sauce in our store, they were out of it so I used red. Turned out very good."
"This was a wonderful dish. I make homemade salsa and we loved it. Thx for the recipe. Margie"
"Just add black beans or refried beans, garlic, and onions and this can be a 5 star!"
"I followed the recipe exactly (sort of). I used shredded chicken breast instead of beef. They were fantastic. I think they are even better than the chicken enchiladas I make. They freeze well too. We all loved them. Don't put the sauce or cheese on the burritos until you are ready to put them in the oven. That way they don't get soggy."
"We didn't enjoy it but perhaps in the future it would be good to try again."
"Very tasty. All the kids loved them"
"We used red enchilada sauce and salsa. A little different twist on an easy-to-make recipe."
"We loved this! Made it with no tweeking at all, I was great."
"These turned out way better than I expected. I'm a vegetarian so I used a bag of meat substitute instead of the beef. Delicious!"
"Loved it! Used a roasted veggie salsa since I had it on hand, the whole family rated as five star! Will try with refried beans next time. Kim, thank your brother in law for me!"
"I added refried beans in with the meat, and they were delicious! They were easy and even better the next day. My family loved them!"
"I have tried many, many different burrito recipes only to be disappointed. This one is a keeper for me. It is delicious and so, so simple! I wasn't sure about the salsa verde, so I substituted regular salsa in this recipe. It turned out great!"
"Not very tasty...a bit bland. The tortillas got gooey while cooking too."
"my family LOVED this recipe! i had to make it twice in one week!!"
