So tonight I made a recipe that fi and I love... so I thought I would share with everyone.. this is a recipe I found through , which happens to be one of my favorite websites :)
So here we go:

Wet Burritos Recipe #33665
Having grown up with these, I didn't realize that most folks have never heard of a wet burrito. It is a meat and bean (or all meat or all bean) burrito with a spicy gravy and cheese on top. They are available here in many restaurants, and no self respecting bar would be without one on the menu, lol! Once you try them, you'll never go back to "dry" burritos again! Don't let the long list of directions scare you, these are easy!
