We love barbecue and we love burritos, so I decided to "marry" them! This is a great recipe for a busy day. Pick up a container of your favorite barbecue, while on your way home, or use leftover barbecue from the fridge. After you chop a little onion and grate a bit of cheese, the hard part's over! It only takes a few minutes to prepare, is very filling and so delicious!
