A Catholic Home Recipe

Nora and the Giant Burrito
My younger sister Colleen and husband Jon have 5 children. With a busy household, there is always lots to do each afternoon and dinner is sometimes hard to plan. Colleen is lucky like me in that her husband likes to cook. Inspired by the Food Network and perhaps Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Giant Burrito was created.

Colleen writes,  "Jon took 4 large burritos and overlapped them.  He put ground beef on one side and chicken on the other and layered Mexican rice and refried beans over the meats.  He rolled it up and put enchilada sauce, queso and Mexican cheese on top, and baked for 20-30 minutes at 350.  Each of us had a big slice with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and guacamole on top."

During these hectic days of Advent, let's make this simple meal for our families. Let's gather everyone home, light the candles on the advent wreath and use the extra time saved by having a quick and simple meal to pray the rosary (or even just a decade) after dinner.

  1. Looks yummy! I am going to make this for dinner- maybe not so large for just me and Frank. Tell your sis- Thanks for sharing.
