This is one of our favorite burrito recipes that we keep in the refrigerator to grab anytime we feel like it. So perfect with your favorite hot sauce. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, you are in for a treat.

I make a sausage, rice, corn base that is seasoned with dry Ranch dressing seasoning. The rice is even great as a side dish. You’ll love this flavor packed dish!

You can go lighter on the rice so that the ratio of sausage is greater. Whatever your preference. I’ve also added diced tomatoes, green chilies and salsa to the mix. You can get creative with your family’s favorite ingredients.

I used burrito size tortillas but I also enjoy using Tortilla Land’s uncooked tortillas you heat up on a skillet. Top filling with cheese and roll up.

Cheddar, mozzarella, or even a pepper jack cheese would be great.
