Notes

  • This is a great 5 Ingredient Burrito Recipe!
  • Substitute shredded cooked chicken for hamburger in these chili verde burrito recipe. 
  • Monterrey Jack or Colby Jack would be great alternative cheese to use. 
  • Burritos are usually large so use the 10-inch variety of flour tortillas if possible.
  • How do you fold a burrito?
    1. Put the filling in the center.
    2. Fold the two ends in towards the center.
    3. And then, fold the two sides into the center.
    4. Flip the burrito so that the seam is at the bottom. 
  • I love when cheese on top of casseroles is kinda brown and crusty. To achieve this, broil for a couple minutes. Be sure to stand by the oven so it doesn't completely burn the top.
