Very good! Loved the twist of using mozzerella cheese - it worked nicely. I used the option of baking with sauce - used Mesa Red Sauce - and a little extra cheese on top. Yum! Thanks for sharing! PAC Fall '11.
I love bean and cheese burritos and this recipe didn't disappoint. I'd never used mozzarella on them before and was pleasantly surprised with the taste. I added some chopped onion and used homemade flour tortillas. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
