I used this as a filling for oven-baked chimichangas. My son thanks you for not putting any beans in it! I left out the sugar and added a tiny bit of diced jalapeno. The dried cilantro doesn't pack quite the punch of fresh, but the finished dish was still delicious. Thanks for posting!

Thanks Ruthie! What a terrific recipe. This makes the best tasting burrito we have ever tasted. We are huge Latin food fans and frequent the Latin restaurants in our area. I used different peppers due to an allergy to Bell Peppers and I added Mexican Oregano because I have it in the herb garden. These MAY have tweaked the recipe a little but it is fantastic just the way it is. Well Done!
