Cooking Thursday

I told you all that I would share my recipe for burritos.  I also told you they were so easy to make that I feel like I'm cheating.  You'll understand when you see the recipe!
This is a recipe that Bob actually got at work quite a few years ago.  There was another guy he worked with who brought these in and made the other workers hungry.  His wife passed on the recipe and I've been making them ever since!
 The cheating part of the recipe is because the main burrito is already made, you just mix up the sauce and add cheese.  That makes this a nice quick meal to throw together when you get home late!

Easiest Burritos Ever!

1 family package frozen El Monterey Burritos (8)
1 jar beef gravy
8 ounces tomato sauce
1/2 envelope burrito seasoning
8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place frozen burritos in 9x13 pan. 
Stir together the gravy, tomato sauce and burrito seasoning.  Pour over burritos, making sure you cover each one.
Cover pan with foil and place in oven for 40 minutes,
Remove from oven, remove foil and sprinkle cheese over burritos.  Return to oven, uncovered and bake another 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
Serve with sour cream, chopped onions, guacamole or topping of your choice.

The only trouble with this is that we don't have such things as frozen burritos in this country!! Otherwise I would make them as I am sure they are delicious! xx
