I don't recall where or how I came up with this recipe, but I do recall many compliments from the girls and guests on how delicious the meal is. And it's so unbelievably easy!

32-ounce package (8 servings) frozen beef & green chili burritos

2 15-ounce cans green chile sauce with pork

7-ounce can diced green chile peppers

8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded

cilantro leaves, dried or fresh

ground cumin

toppings: tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream, sliced green onion

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 9-by-13 baking dish with cooking spray and arrange burritos in pan. Top with green chile sauce, diced green chiles, and 2/3 of the grated cheddar. Sprinkle with cilantro and cumin to taste. Cover tightly with foil (I usually spray foil with cooking spray before covering pan so cheese doesn't stick to the foil).

Bake 45 minutes at 375 degrees. Remove foil, sprinkle with remaining cheddar and a bit more cumin and cilantro, if desired; bake 10 more minutes, til cheese is melted.

To serve, top with tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream, green onions.

Makes four large servings or eight smaller servings.
