  2. Delicious! I doubled the recipe and only added 1 Tbsp of oregano, that is my personal preference. This was really tasty! I will be adding this one to the menu! BTW I grew up in El Paso! Graduated from Eastwood! I miss the mountains! Janelle

    • Hi Janelle! I’m glad you liked this recipe. I graduated from Montwood so we’re both east-siders. What a small world! 🙂

      • I offered to make my husband a burrito out of this mixture the next day and he said he was in a hurry and could not wait. He said all he thought about all day was when he could come home and eat a burrito! I LOVE chile relleno burritios also with some beans in there too! YUM! I guess you know what I will be making alot of!
