In trying to use up items in my pantry, I decided to make BURRITOS ON YESTERDAY FOR DINNER.

I only needed a few fresh ingredients to make the meal complete.

I used ground Chuck & mixed it with ground turkey. It is a simple meal, but the hardest part is all of the chopping of the veggies, which really isn't hard just a little time consuming.

They were tasty,& quite filling, I could only eat a half of one along with the roasted mixed vegetables that I made to go with them.

It was a great meal idea, in keeping with the theme of using from the pantry. You can use veggies that you like

4Prep and chop all the vegetables that will be used. Lettuce, tomatoes, onions, salsa, sour cream,cheese. I like to put all ingredients on a large platter. WE DO NOT CARE FOR CILANTRO, that is why none is used, but if you like it, by all means use it.
