Homemade Frozen Bean Burritos

Frozen burritos used to be one of my favorite I just got home from work, school, or after a late night meal. They are cheap and easy to cook. However good they are no good for you. They have too much fat and salt and not enough protein and flavor. There are other burritos on the market but they are kind of lightweight, don't have enough flavor and are expensive, up to $5. Given this sad state of affairs, I decided to make my own burritos, wrap' em up and freeze them for those cold and lonely night.

This recipe is very easy and can be switched up to include cooked vegetables, chopped meat, and pretty much anything else you can think of. I like to start out with big, 12 inch burrito size flour tortillas and fill them with a base of cooked rice, beans and cheese. This recipe cost about $15 and will make 8 hefty size burritos, filled with good stuff and will satisfy your comfort food cravings.

Homemade Frozen Bean Burritos

  • 2 Cans Black Beans, drianed and rinsed
  • 1 Can Refried Beans
  • 1 Can Corn, drained
  • 1 C Salsa
  • 2 C Cheddar Cheese
  • 3 C Rice, cooked and cooled
  • 1 packet Taco Seasoning
  • Place all of the ingredients into a bowl, mix until combined and place in the freezer for 20 minutes. Microwave the tortillas until to soften them, about 30 seconds. Lay the tortillas out on a flat surface and place one (1) cup of the bean mixture on the tower third of the tortilla. Fold the bottom portion over the filling, tuck in the sides and finish rolling until the package is tight. Rest the burrito on the seam side. Double wrap the burritos tightly in plastic wrap and freeze until solid.

    To cook the burritos, unwrap them from the plastic and microwave on a plate for 90 seconds. Turn over and cook for 60 seconds, turn again and go for 30 seconds more or until the burrito is hot.

    I like to finish the burritos off by browning them in a medium hot skillet until toasty on both sides. All you have to do is pre heat a skillet, add a teaspoon of oil, when it smokes, place the hot burrito in the pan and cook for 2 minutes, turn and repeat.
