Busy Day Casserole

I have this reputation among my friends as some pseudo Martha Stewart.  Which I am not, but I do put up a great front.  I love to cook, craft, bake and decorate.  I think everyone believes we have seven-course steak and lobster meals every night.  Quite the opposite.  Mr. Devilish and Little Devil and I are pretty much like everyone else.  That's why I'm usually embarrassed when I bump into someone I know at the grocery store.  I have this Martha-esque reputation to uphold, but then they see my grocery basket full of Velveeta Shells-n-Cheese and PopTarts.  And slightly more embarrassing:  Frozen Burritos.  Unless I have given them this recipe.  Then they know why my shopping cart is full of ready made food.  And then know something awesome is coming up on the dinner table!  This is a terrific slow cooker recipe.  It's literally 4 ingredients, but a very tasty, satisfying meal.  Try it.  And don't be embarrassed if your friends see frozen burritos in your grocery basket.

Don't laugh!  So easy and tasty!
The ingredients.  Don't be embarrassed.
You can be really versatile.  Hot, spicy, medium
You can use all enchilada sauce, all salsa or a combo
of both!
Place 5 burritos in slow cooker.  Cover
with half of enchilada sauce and salsa.
Cover with a little cheese.
If you want.  Or leave the cheese for the end.
It's up to you.
It's all good.
Repeat the layers with the next 5 burritos.
30 minutes before serving, sprinkle with
lots of cheese!!
Dish up and serve.
Enjoy the rave reviews
and resist the temptation to admit
how easy it was.
