#35) Chocolate Banana Burritos



Tonight we had a couple of friends over for supper and in the planning that went into the meal over the past couple of days, the evening took on a somewhat Mexican theme. The menu was to include chicken quesadillas, Mexican rice, and tortilla chips. I intentionally made yesterday's brownies as this particular meal's dessert, but my finace decided dessert should also be slightly Mexican.... That is what led to this wonderfully simple and tasty sweet treat. These were great and I would definitely make them again, and again, and again! LOL

  11. I have a silly question for you all. Do these have to be eaten warm? I am cooking lunch for a few co-workers as we all cook something one day a month to share at work. The theme is Mexican and these sound soooo good.
