To preface my review, my star rating may not be accurate specifically to the recipe itself, because this is a great, tasty, basic recipe, but I took it to the next level to create five star burritos with a Mexican flair. Yummy! As the starting point, I left the original recipe nearly as is, with these minor changes:
1. I only had 1/2 onion on hand and that was plenty.
2. I added one stalk of celery chopped, and sauteed it with the rest of the vegetables.
3. Instead of tomato sauce, I mixed in about 1/4 cup of medium Pace Picante Sauce, for more flavor.
4. I stopped short of adding the cheese at this point.
Next, I cooked some meat for the burritos, simply taking a couple pork chops, cutting them into small, bite-sized pieces and browning them until thoroughly cooked in 2 T butter, seasoning them with a desired amount of pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and basil, to compliment the veggie mix. You could easily do this as well with a couple chicken breasts or some nice beef.
Finally, to put it all together, I warmed flour tortillas in the microwave, and then filled them with the veggie mix, meat, and cheese, and then punctuated the mix with a desired amount of Tapatio hot sauce for a final spicy touch. (A little sour cream would also have been nice, but we were out of that). Regardless, the result was homemade burrito heaven. This is something I will end up making again and again. Thanks!
