Hi friends! I want to give you a great money saving tip! If you’re like me, sometimes after a busy day you want the taste of a homemade meal without the big fuss. So we order out to get the closest thing to home cooked. But ordering out can be very expensive. So why not make your own frozen dinners! You get a home cooked meal, and it’s way better quality than the frozen dinners at the grocer. I used to fall victim to the packs of frozen burritos in the frozen food aisle. They were expensive and cheated me on the filling! I was chewing on tortillas and barely cheese and bean! So, I created the perfect solution! I simply made my own burritos and froze them. It’s very simple to do! Here is the recipe!
You can add any filling that you like, just make sure that it’s room temperature and it’s not dripping with moisture/ juice. If so, you will get soggy tortillas. For the bean burritos you can either heat up the refried beans in a saucepan and then let it cool to room temperature, or you can dump the beans out of the can into a bowl and stir it until it’s smooth. I usually loosen up my bean filling by heating and cooling it to room temperature. Now that you have made the mixture pliable for spooning, lay out a single tortilla. Spoon your desired amount of filling onto the tortilla. Please don’t add too much filling or it will spill out when you fold up the tortilla! Then add your shredded cheese. Now it’s folding time!
You may not fold it properly the first couple of times. But don’t become discouraged. You’ll be just fine as long as you don’t add too much filling. Once you have all your burritos folded, wrap them individually in plastic wrap. Then put all the wrapped burritos in a large freezer bag. And now you have your own homemade frozen burritos!
Note: You can heat them up in the microwave, oven, or toaster oven.
