recipe 1: chicken burritos

Last weekend my husband had to work both Saturday and Sunday, unexpectedly, so our plans were changed. I decided to stay around the house and work on some big projects, more on that later. Since I don’t particularly like to cook, I wanted to make something quick and easy. We both like Mexican food and I had most of the necessary ingredients, so I chose a chicken burrito recipe from the Limited Edition Better Homes and Gardens book.

I’m not going to type up the recipe because honestly, it wasn’t that good. I did have to substitute one item, so maybe that would have made a difference. The recipe calls for a can of jalapeno-flavored bean dip, which I didn’t have. I used a can of 99% fat free refried beans instead.

The burritos weren’t horrible, just not something I would make again. As I looked at the recipe later, I was surprised to see a “best loved” label next to it in the book. Like I said, it could have been the beans.

  1. I have that cook book. I haven't tried too many recipes and couple have been pretty ho-hum. They did have a couple pasta sauces we liked in there.
