    I tried making the cheesy burritos a d they did not come out right. The way the recipe is worded you need to brown the cheese on both sides BEFORE you put the meat on and fold. It was time consuming and i will not make this again

    I am sorry you did not enjoy this one. You do not need to brown the cheese on both sides, it works best if you leave the cheese undistributed until you fold it to make the burrito.
