Jalisco-style cheese burritos: Help, please!

rexsreine | Apr 23, 2008 11:27 AM

We live in AZ and most of the Mexican food here is Sonoran. I've learned to make some good dishes in this style. My husband and his daughter are from Tennessee, where the style of Mexican food originates in Jalisco. My step-daughter loves their cheese burritos and I'd like to surprise her on Sunday with a dish of them. My husband says the restaurants appear to use delicatessen white American cheese that has been shredded and rolled inside a steamed, moist flour tortilla. A thin red sauce is poured on top and the burritos are baked (or put under a salamander). Anyone have more precise instructions or a recipe for Jalisco red sauce?
