Recipe by ChefDLH
This is a great appetizer for six people. It is easy to make and looks delicious and smells that way too. It comes from the 2009 Pillsbury Easy Mexican Meals cookbook magazine that you get in the stores by the checkout. I love recipes that are basic and you can learn something fun and be able to tweek it to your own. This is such that type of appetizer. You can make it as is, double the cheese, add different meats, sauces, veggies, etc and transform it. I enjoyed learning how to make such a big burrito. I enjoyed it the way it is written and adding one's own twist. My guests consumed it quickly. I served with shredded lettuce, grape tomatoes and sour cream. Enjoy! ChefDLH
