4 Weeks to Fill Your Freezer: Brown Bag Burritos (Day 7)

If your family loves burritos, you need to try this recipe. It’s one of my husband’s favorite grab-and-go foods!

We’ve made it time and again since I first discovered it on Amy’s blog.

What I like best about this recipe is that, not only is it filling, but it’s also fast. You can have a piping hot burrito in less than two minutes — straight from the freezer. It’s perfect for those times when my husband wants a late-night snack or some hot for lunch on the weekends.

These are little too much on the spicy side for my liking (keep in mind that I’m also the girl who likes extra mild salsa!), but my husband loves these. In fact, he was so excited I was making them again this week.

Did you do any freezer cooking today? If so, I’d love to see the results of your efforts! Link up your blog posts below or tell us about your success in the comments.

    I just made these tonight. I struggled filling them even with room temp tortillas. For some reason, the tortillas from Trader Joe’s seem to stick to one another and are a bit thin. I warmed them up slightly then filled them. They survived but it was not ideal. Anyone have any suggestions? I do not buy tortillas from regular stores so it has to be from TJs or Whole Foods… should I freeze them first, then split them apart and then when room temp fill them? 3 of us loved this recipe (I used less enchilada sauce, subbed rice for some of the ground beef and used 2 tsp. chili powder and 2 tsp. garlic), 1 didn’t like them because of the rice and the other didn’t care for them because of the beans… story of my life! Anyone ever tried these with chicken?

    I got all my stuff ready for the burritos and then I do not have any papertowels can I refrigerate the mix until I am ready to freeze them??

      Yes, you definitely can. You could also use wax paper or freezer paper in place of the paper towels, if you happen to have any of those.

    I made these today and loved them! I did substitute the enchilada sauce with tomato soup and a small can of green chiles though. (Just what I had on hand.)

    I haven’t done extensive price analysis on these, but I love the foil wrappers at dollar tree. They are comparable to the footage on the cheap foil at dollar tree and much better quality. I use them for any and all frozen burritos!

    I put a link to a cookie recipe that I made today. It’s my families favorite. Makes 4 dozen. i keep a few out at room temp and the rest I freeze so kids and husband have a snack anytime they need one. I also freeze scones, biscotti and banana bread. Yummy!

    I finally made this and I am glad I did. I just had one and they are sooooo good! I am excited to mix up my husbands lunch with these. He will be pleasantly surprised.
