Easy Freezer Burritos

These are really easy to make and are so nice to have on hand for quick lunches or dinners.  You can microwave them frozen or thaw them and bake them with cheese on top.  I was able to make 10 for about five dollars.  One good thing about this recipe is I usually have all the ingredients on hand at all times.  I made black bean and jack cheese, refiried bean and jack cheese, and refried bean, jack cheese, and jalapenos.

  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 2 cups jack cheese
  • sliced jalapenos
  • 10 medium sized tortillas
  • tin foil
Directions:  In medium bowl add drained black beans and one cup cheese.  In separate bowl add refried beans and one cup cheese.  Microwave tortillas on plate for about 45 seconds to soften.  Place tortilla on foil and add some one of the bean mixture.  Fold in two sides of the tortilla then roll.  Repeat until mixture is gone and repeat with second mixture.  I added jalapenos to about 4 of the burritos with refried beans.  Wrap in foil and label.

Microwave Directions:  Unwrap and heat for 1.5-2 minutes.

Oven Directions:  Thaw completely and place in baking dish cover with cheese if desired and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Skillet Directions:  Heat skillet on medium heat and add olive oil.  Place Unwrapped and thawed burrito in pan at heat on both sides until hot throughout.
