This is a dish my mom taught me. It's really quick and easy, and my family loves it.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These chili cheese burritos are comfort food all the way. They remind us of burritos you can get at a Mexican fast-food restaurant. The ground beef is full of taco seasoning flavor and stuffed inside flour tortillas. Then, they're smothered in chili and cheese and baked until the cheese is nice and gooey. Kids will love these!
