When I was a kid, my aunt Rosie used to make chile stuffed burritos for her husband quite often. I loved spending time with her in the kitchen and that how I learned to master them. She used to make a large batch every time she made them because that way she could put a bunch in the freezer for later. Give them a try and surprise your loved ones with delicious chile goodness!
