This recipe for enchilada style burritos is on I got several years ago from a Quick Cooking Magazine. The magazine has since changed it’s name to Simple and Delicious. I have made a few modifications from the original recipe.

This a a good way to fancy up good old frozen burritos. You could used canned enchilada sauce and do the same thing, but I really like this recipe for the sauce. I made the sauce thicker than what the original recipe was. The original recipe also used bean and cheese burritos, but we usually have beef and bean.
