Outcome:

So……. this was actually my first burrito.  I have never had any desire to even taste a taco, burrito or anything of the likes, but my husband loves loves loves Mexican food.  I decided for my sake, and my kids sake, that I would make our first burrito not as spicy, and it worked!  I let my kids try the meat prior to putting it in the wrap just so they would know they liked it.  Children are much more likely to eat a mixture of foods if they know they like everything in the mixture individually.
