lay tortallia on a flat surface and scoop filling in the middle, take BOTH smaller ends of the tortilla and fold Inward, then with your thumbs grab the tortilla side CLOSEST to your body and flip over toward your finger tips.and tuck in tight! (hope that helps :P )
Grease a 9x13 pan with a light coating of corn oil. place all burritos in side ways, cover with las palmas enchilada sauce (Green Salsa), and bake for 20 mins, at 375*.

Shut off oven, and add 1 Cup of shredded cheese to the top of the burritos and let sit in oven til melted.
I serve mine with Cilantro and Avocado halfs, with mexican rice, and a dash of sourcream. Enjoy!

    This sounds so good I have made my own version of enchiladas but never like so I was wondering if the green salsa is too spicy for a three year old ?

    Elizabeth, please - the last item in your ingredient list is "1 can(s) large can of _______?" The rest of the recipe is well explained in your instructions, just that large final can seems to be a Green Salsa. Is that correct? Thanks for posting this recipe. It does sound delicious!!! Your folding photos and instructions were outstanding for folks who are new to making Burritos!
