Make these all the time sometimes with sometimes without ground beef. I used homemade frijoles with the frijoles recipe from this site. Very good thanks Becky;) Read More

Wow there is WAY too much salt in this recipe... and I am a salt fiend. I had to add a second can of beans just to make it edible. Still didn't care for the combination of spices. Still it's a nice idea and I might make it again with my own spice combination. Read More

We loved the fold! It worked great for the kids and the parents loved it too! I didn't follow the recipe since some of the reviews said it was too salty but made my own version of tacos with only a pinch of salt. Read More

Great idea for the folding of the tortillas! I just used lime-flavored refried beans and didn't add any of the ingredients to it. Other than that I used all the basic taco fillings. Very good! Read More

Very easy-- I liked that I didn't even have to turn on the stove. For toppings I had avacado cheese and green onions only but it was still very good. I used fat-free sour cream and lactose-free cheese. Read More

My daughter ate the whole batch by herself! Both my kids and my picky husband loved this recipe. It is a needed change from the usual meat and potatoes dinner. Serve with yellow rice or a salad and you have a healthy nutritious meal without the guilt or the gut! Thanks! Read More

This is good. I love the way you fold the burrito shells. My kids won't eat the beans though so I make theirs with chicken. Read More
