Hubby enjoys more meat and veggies and I enjoy more lettuce! The best thing about burritos is you can stuff them with whatever you like! My daughter loves them with lettuce, cheese and chicken only. No wrong way to enjoy them! 🙂
This is a great meal for entertaining as well. It will feed at least 10 people easily and like I said you can bulk up with cheaper ingredients to really stretch the meal. This is just one of our favorite meals when I’m feeling a little lazy and it’s so good! My hubby and I love burritos and tacos so this is always a hit. He will even eat these cold! I prefer to have them warm, but they’re really good either way. 🙂
