    Just found your blog recently and loved how fresh these burritos looked. I made them a just a couple of nights ago and wow, these were really good. Everyone loved them – I think the fresher the ingredients, the better they turn out! I made my own tortillas, so this made it extra special! Definitely will be something I make again!

    Looks great by your photos. I love the ingredients and burritos are a fun meal for my gang. I plan to try them out soon. Your instructions are super easy to follow, which I appreciate very much. I’m an ok cook, but I can’t just throw things together like some people can, I have to have directions. :)
