Freezer Friendly Beef Burritos

You guys.

I found this recipe over at Money Saving Mom, and it's ah-mazing.

We make these beef burritos at least once every few months.

Freeze 'em.

Then when you want 'em, pop 'em in the microwave for about 2-minutes and wah-lah!

They're perfect for a quick lunch!

Below is the recipe.



2 lbs Ground Beef
2 Cans Refried Beans
2 Cans Red Enchilada Sauce
1/2 Cup Water
1/3 Cup Diced Onion
1 Taco Seasoning Packet
1 Teaspoon Oregano
3 Cups Shredded Cheese
20 Burrito-sized Whole Wheat Tortillas

Brown ground beef with onions. Drain and add all remaining ingredients except tortillas and cheese.

Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20-30 minutes.

Spoon 1/4-cup of the meat mixture onto a tortilla, sprinkle with cheese.

Fold sides in and roll up tightly.

To freeze: Wrap each burrito in foil. Put burritos in two airtight ziptop freezer bags and store in the freezer for 2-3 months.

To serve: Pull out desired number of burritos. Remove foil and heat a single burrito in the microwave for about a minute or leave the foil on and heat one or more burritos in a preheated 350-degree oven for 30 minutes or until heated through.

Taste great plain or served with lettuce, cheese, salsa, and/or rice.
