Notes... There are a few components to this dish, but they all work on their own as well. The ingredients are listed in terms of the different items that need to be cooked. The tomato sauce I use for a lot of things - even a simple dip for baked tortilla chips. The Avocado dressing is amazing as a creamy salad dressing, over vegetables, as a dip. The sour cream is the same. If you have any leftover Burrito filling just have with rice for dinner. So it is a recipe with quite a few uses.
