My wife is a great cook. She's had lots of practice over the years. I, on the other hand, am good a just a few dishes. The easier, the better! One of my favorite things to make is something called Gene's Best Burritos. I have messed with this recipe many times. It's best when done simply.Gene's Best Burritos
