Make these all the time, sometimes with, sometimes without ground beef. I used homemade frijoles with the frijoles recipe from this site. Very good, thanks Becky ;)

Wow, there is WAY too much salt in this recipe... and I am a salt fiend. I had to add a second can of beans just to make it edible. Still didn't care for the combination of spices. Still, it's a nice idea and I might make it again with my own spice combination.

We loved the fold! It worked great for the kids and the parents loved it too! I didn't follow the recipe since some of the reviews said it was too salty, but made my own version of tacos with only a pinch of salt.

Super easy and delicious! Perfect for a mom to make and kids to eat!

Very easy-- I liked that I didn't even have to turn on the stove. For toppings, I had avacado, cheese and green onions only, but it was still very good. I used fat-free sour cream and lactose-free cheese.

Great idea for the folding of the tortillas! I just used lime-flavored refried beans and didn't add any of the ingredients to it. Other than that I used all the basic taco fillings. Very good!

My daughter ate the whole batch by herself! Both my kids and my picky husband loved this recipe. It is a needed change from the usual meat and potatoes dinner. Serve with yellow rice or a salad and you have a healthy nutritious meal without the guilt or the gut! Thanks!

I just added this to my recipe box my kids love burritos! I am sure these are fabulous, but what I really like about this recipe is the unique way the taco-burrito is folded so all the stuff doesn't fall out!
