Homemade Burritos September 10, 2009

I’ve been extra spoiled lately by having lots and lots of homemade meals cooked for me.  Tonight, Ross and I cooked together, but he did the bulk of the work.  He made his famous homemade burritos – something that he has made a few times for himself while I was not home.  I’ve been wanting to try them for a long time, so I was super excited when he agreed to make them this week.

 

The recipe that he uses for the chicken filling is found on allrecipes.com.  It is called Salsa Burrito Chicken Filling, and it is oh so tasty.  The real treat about these, however, is the homemade crepes that serve as the tortillas.  That recipe can be found here on cooks.com.  He only uses the recipe for the crepes, we haven’t tried the first part of that recipe. 

 

After preparing the chicken and crepes, he spreads a layer of refried beans on the crepes, fills them with the chicken filling, tops them with some cheese and rolls them up.  They are placed seam side down in a 9×13 dish (spread some salsa on the bottom of the dish first), topped with salsa and more shredded cheese, and baked for about 20 minutes at 350.

 

Aaaaaaah…. SO good.  And so creative!  Once again, I am so thankful to have found a man who is such a good cook, and who enjoys being so creative in the kitchen. 

 

We served these up with some sour cream on top and with some fried Mexi-corn.  Just delicious!
