"I created this one night out of whatever I had on hand that I thought might taste good together--my husband thinks I'm a genius now! We named them 'cigars' because they're shaped like cigars, and if you blow into one end, smoke billows out the other!" — imdd

I made this for my vegetarian daughter and was surprised when the whole family helped themselves, not realizing it was a meatless dish. After eating one each we decided we would like the tortilla a little crisper and threw them under the broiler for a few minutes. They were delicious. I made a few minor changes due to the ingredients I had on hand - dried cilantro, medium cheddar and whole wheat wraps. This will be in our regular rotation - finally a dish everyone likes - and it was so quick and easy too! Update: We make this dish often, but to make it even healthier we substitute brown rice for the tater tots.
Nothing spectacular but good. Rather bland even though I followed other reviewer's suggestions and added more seasonings including a ton of cumin. I had to eat them with more salsa to really enjoy them. Don't think I'll make them again.
I love this recipe! My husband didn't even notice there was no beef. I've made this recipe with rice instead of potatoes and it's still great, especially with Ready Rice it's really easy. FINAL TWEAKS: a few handfuls of frozen tator tots, ro-tel instead of tomatoes, 1C salsa, same cheese, sour cream & seasonings. Combine and burrito-roll into six 10" tortillas, line in 9x13 dish, bake UNCOVERED til light brown & crispy. Reheat in oven: 450 uncovered; reheat in microwave: cut in half, 2 minutes on high.
We love this recipe. I have made it three times since I downloaded the recipe in october. For some reason, and people didn't seem to mention this in other reviews, but it was very spicy--too spicy, for me the first time. I don't know I'm a pansy or if I missed something, but it was too hot. So I cut the picante sauce in half the second time and it was much easier to manage (and delicious).
It rocked, just ROCKED. I just bought the potato patties from market day, so they were on hand for my "meatless" lunch. I scaled the recipe to 1 (for my lunch today) and only used 1 patty. I topped with enchilada sauce & sour cream. Thanks so much DeeDee!
Really good! I didn't have tomotoes, so I used salsa. Only change I would make next time would be to bake the tater tots first - they tasted a little too firm, which together with the firmness of the beans, was a little much. The mix of flavors was great!
I've made these several times, but only last night did I follow the recipe closely enough to rate it. These are wonderful! I used a little more cilantro, some cumin, and a lot of red pepper flakes. Turned out great - thank you for the recipe!
This was so good. I made them a little bigger, more burrito like and added more cheese to the top during the final baking. It's just the two of us so we had leftovers and ate them three nights in a row! Oh, I also sliced a little avocado on the side. We love anything Mexican and this is definitely a keeper in our house. Thanks for sharing!
