Laudee, This was really good!!! I love mexican food better than any other! This was really good with a salad & some refried beans. Thanks for the great recipe. Darlene Summers
Nothing but pluses for this one. Doesn’t get any easier and quicker than browning some beef and opening a couple of cans. Except for the refried beans, that is – I used Di Neal’s refried beans, having vowed never to buy canned again. And what an unusual but absolutely delightful combination of green enchilada sauce and mushroom soup – whoda thunkit? I was doing the happy dance at the store when I found that Campbell’s now has a reduced-sodium version of their ‘shroom soup. The only thing I added were some chopped caramelized onions to the meat mixture and a little cumin for seasoning, simply because I was using all low-sodium or sodium free ingredients; and at the very end of the baking time, I put the dish under the broiler for just a few minutes to get a few of those lovely little brown bits on the bubbling cheese. Went back for seconds, so we did. You really ought to try these.
I have two picky eaters...a 7 year old and a 10 year old. It's hard to find meals that both my children and my husband and I all agree on. When I set these on the table my kids were skeptical because of the green sauce (we're red sauce eaters) and my daughter saw that I had used a can of cream of mushroom soup in them. They reluctantly tried them, then went on to eat an entire burrito each. Both my husband and I also liked them, so this goes down as one of the rare recipes that will please my entire family. The recipe doesn't mention which size tortillas to use so I used the burrito size and came out with 7 burritos total. I also used reduced fat mexican cheese blend instead of monterey jack and cheddar. If you have picky eaters that enjoy ground beef, I would definitely give this a try. QUICK and tasty!
