You may be familiar with this dish or you may not. Truth be told, I didn't know about these until I saw the recipe in the Taste of Home Cookbook.
After looking at the picture and reading through the recipe, I just knew that this would one be a hit in my house....and it was.
It is SO good, it's a cross between a taco and a burrito, it's creamy, it's filling, it's delicious.
