Here's another family favorite from the Food Matters Cookbook! All credit to Mark Bittman for the combination of flavors here, what I have posted is slightly modified from the original. While this is a great burrito recipe, the filling is pretty versatile; use it to fill any kind of tortilla, make it up early in the day and create AMAZING quesadillas for dinner or layer it in baking dish with cheese and corn tortillas for a simple enchilada(ish) casserole!
