I've talked about this before, but its funny - every year we get a season pass with a meal plan from my parents for Christmas.  Even with as much as we do (trips down to Virginia, and Georgia, our trip to Assateague, all of our day trips we use the meal plan A LOT.   Go to the park in the morning, jump in the water, cool off, get lunch (subway, mexican food, Chickie's and Pete's, salads, brisket, pulled pork, rotisserie chicken, hand breaded shrimp....) go home, do stuff, repeat for dinner... and the funny thing is that you think Amusement park stuff, but it's actually pretty good.... We will even grab subway for the next day and take it home so when we leave early in the morning we already have lunch made and packed... My wife jokes, it's the best Christmas gift we could get from them because it's not junky stuff, and we don't have to cook at all with dishes and such during the summer... even week-ends thru Sept. and Oct.  

So what's that have to do with the recipe?  Well, my Mexican menu that I do tends to just be taco Tuesday, when I remember.... Over the summer, the boys fell in love with the Mexican place that does burritos, and this recipe looks both really good AND really easy, so thanks!
