Wet Burritos 2When it’s going out night, my hubby always asks, “Babe, where do you want to go for dinner tonight?” My first response is always, “Mexican, honey.” He then rolls his eyes and knows to ignore me and ask the kids.

If you have ever looked around my blog, you will know that I am in love with Mexican food. Okay maybe a little obsessed is the right word. I just love it! I could eat it everyday if my family would let me. I just love taco night, enchilada night, or even tex-mex casserole night. The list is endless, really. Since I can eat Mexican every night and don’t mind it doesn’t mean the family does. I’m sure they are sick and tired of always having Mexican.I really wanted to make something that I knew the boys would love. Every time we are out to dinner they always get a wet burrito. They rave about these darn burritos. Well I wanted to recreate that for them, but better.

Wet Burritos

When I set out to make these, I had no idea really what I was doing. I just added a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Well that little bit of this and little bit of that, turned out to be the best wet burritos. I used my homemade enchilada sauce (If you are pressed for time, the canned version will work fine with this dish), added some black beans and corn to the mixture. Also needed some cheese, chicken and don’t forget the cilantro. Every Mexican dish needs cilantro in my opinion. I made all the burritos, then added them to a 9×13 baking dish. Scattered some more of that enchilada sauce on top and sprinkle some shredded cheese, then bake that baby for about 15 minutes. Out comes these deliciously tasting burritos.
