Burrito Pie

 

It has been awhile since I have posted a Mexican recipe, so when my wife saw this Burrito Pie Recipe and thought it looked really good; I decided to give it a try. It is pretty much like a burrito casserole just with kind of a different name. This is another simple recipe with not a lot of prep time. It is mildly seasoned, so if you like it hot, you might want to add some red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper. I prepared the recipe as is; it was very good. The next time you add Mexican to the menu, give this Burrito Pie Recipe a try. Your family will love it. Enjoy

Wet Burrito

After eating at the Asian buffet the other night I figured it was time for a change. This Wet Burrito Recipe was my Son’s idea; I thought it was a good one so I decided to give it a try. I have never eaten Wet Burritos, and Mexican cosine sounded real good for tonight’s supper. This is a simple recipe, and doesn’t involve a lot a prep time. I don’t like a lot of heat so I used mild enchilada sauce. If you like it hot, just use the hotter sauce, or spice it up with cayenne pepper. This recipe is delicious the way it is; but I am sure you could make any number of changes to it; to your liking. Enjoy

I love stuffed shells. I don’t make them very often because they are quite a bit of work. If you like tacos you will love this taco stuffed shells recipe. Be careful not to over cook the shells. You want the pasta to be firm enough, and in shape for stuffing. I cooked the shells while I was preparing the stuffing. This would be an absolutely great recipe for a potluck or party. This recipe serves 12. I doubled it. 3 people in this family and we wiped it out. Just delicious. Enjoy
