We love burritos and these are a combo of some of our favorite things all rolled into one. Truth be told ... It's all about the rice. Customize these to your taste .. make it spicier or use chicken in place of beef. I use small tortillas for these because they are so filling. My husband loves to double up the tortilla with a layer of cheese in the middle. He sprinkles cheese on one .. lays another on top then nukes until the cheese is melted. It glues the 2 tortillas together and honestly it is really tasty that way. Serve with some crunchy chips, salsa and a Margarita !
