  • 1 7-oz. can diced green chiles
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. lime zest
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin

  • 1 1/2 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese


  • 10-oz. pkg. frozen corn & butter 
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
  • juice of 1 lime

Lightly grease 9X13 glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Place 8 frozen burritos into pan and microwave 8 minutes or until all burritos are hot. Preheat broiler.

While burritos are warming, place sour cream, green chiles, salt, pepper, lime zest, lime juice, cumin and cilantro. Pulse and then blend until smooth. Spoon generously over warm burritos.
