Notes

Tips for making this recipe:

  • For this recipe, I use mild salsa but feel free to use whatever salsa your family likes best.
  • I feel like block cheese that has been hand-grated gives a better melt to this recipe, but feel free to use bagged shredded cheese.
  • If you don't have burrito-sized tortillas, smaller ones can be used but you will use-2-3 more tortillas.
