Cafe Rio Burritos

I’m not really a fan of the restaurant like the rest of the world, but this recipe is really good and feeds a crowd.  It seems a little weird to pour a green sauce on my burrito, but the sauce is what makes it oh so good!  Thanks for the recipe mom!  Thanks for the fun evening friends and family.  While I’m at it, thanks creator of the crockpot!
