Smothered Green Chile And Cilantro Burritos


This is one of those recipes that sounds too good to be true.

Frozen purchased burritos. Any flavor you like. Ten minutes of your time. Dinner’s on the table.

All you do is microwave the burritos. Make a creamy green chile sauce flecked with cilantro. Top the burritos with the sauce and lots of cheese, broil and dig in. The lime infused corn-pepper side dish is a colorful and flavorful accompaniment.
