Can never go wrong with Tex-Mex. My husband and I love these easy burritos. A little too spicy for our kids, but just right for adults.

Savory, Tangy, and Delicious! Being easy, quick, and inexpensive doesn't hurt. Being on my own I do a lot of 'fix large batches and freeze individual servings type meals'. I'm also on the proverbial fixed income so I have to watch the budget. Add to that a love of Mexican food and it's variants and this recipe becomes a precious gift. I made a double batch which yielded 20 burritos. I used home cooked Pintos, Jalapeno Jack Cheese and well drained ground Chuck.(a 5 pound family pack, 2 pounds for these and 3 for a large meatloaf) They turned out firm and moist. They weren't runny. I didn't have to eat them leaning over the sink. Not only will I eat them for the next mounth I will fix them again many times. THANX
