Easy Wet Burritos

5 stars from 2 ratings of Wet Burritos

This is my mom's recipe for burritos. I grew up eating these, and they are the one thing that I still ask for when I go home to visit. Like most great foods, there honestly isn't really a recipe as much as a guideline for creating them. Enjoy!
