Cheesy Beef & Potato Griller


My husband loves the Taco Bell Cheesy Potato Burrito Griller, they are inexpensive, however, it's a fast food chain, so let's admit it. Anything could have made it into that wrap.

I decided to make my own version of these favored snack wraps for him, we know where the ingredients came from, we know who is handling them with clean hands, and they are bigger and better!

These are also great to freeze and pull out for a quick bite later!

He looks quite happy. In fact, he looks like half the males in my family. Here I am in Texas, and a burrito has been my meal so very many times in life. Potatoes, eggs, meat, beans, cheese, and whatever else - the things just make life more worth living. Cheers!
