      Delicious! Great easy recipe for burritos. I followed it exactly except we assembled the burritos at the dinner table, that way everyone fixed their burrito the way they liked it. My ds had 4. This will definitely be a keeper recipe in our house. Thanks, Dorothy for sharing this recipe.

      I sprinkled some cumin in the rice mix and didn't add the cloves. They were really good!
