    bratty's Note:

    i used to make this all the time when i lived by myself, it's one of the first meals i used to make when i just starting out on my own. it makes a great authentic tasting mexican dish. it is orginally from the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, with a few variations. i had to refer back to it, because i am more of a "dump" cook, and nolonger use the measurements when preparing this.

      These burritos were WONDERFUL!!! Unfortunately, I didn't have any fresh cilantro, so I had to use dried. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly and they came out perfect. I served with corn and Spanish rice. My dad and I both LOVED it!! (Although between the two of us, it only made 2 servings/lol) Next time I'll double it, so we can have some leftovers:) Definitely a keeper here!! Thank you, bratty 1! ~Manda

      Bratty! These are fabulous! Very easy to prepare. I simmered 2 boneless chicken breasts with about 5 cloves of slightly crushed garlic and 1/2 an onion, and then shredded. The sauce was very easy to prepare--I sauteed the whites of the green onions with 1 TBSP of dried cilantro, because I had no fresh. The sauce wouldn't thicken after adding the sour cream/flour mixture and the cheese, so I mixed a little cornstarch and water and threw that in. All was good. I added about 3/4 to 1 tsp of ground cumin and about 1/2 tsp of chili powder to the chicken/sauce mixture. These were really easy to roll up, and the flavor was fantastic. My husband said they were better than his favorite restaurant burritos. He had to have seconds. Thanks for such a great recipe bratty!
