Yummy! I baked the burritos in the oven using a fat-free cooking spray and they tasted better than any deep-fried chimichanga we've ever had!

I couldn't find Ortega burrito seasoning mix, so I used another brand. I found it too salty. The recipe is very easy to make, so I may try it again if I can find the Ortega brand seasoning. (Or better yet, come up with my own seasoning.)

Overall very good. I'll definitely make this again, but will use less of the packet of mexican seasoning. (A bit salty).

These were fine but nothing to write home about. I suspect we're just not big fans of the burrito so our opinion is slanted.

I liked it, my husband loved it - although he likes mexican more than I do! I will make this again!

This is a really yummy recipe. We have "meatless" nights sometimes, and I like to make these without the chicken by simply adding the spice packet and water to the beans while they're heating. Delicious and vegetarian, too. :)
