Freezer Burritos

I love burritos, but I hate the ones you buy in the freezer section at the grocery store, so I tried making my own frozen burritos and it works very well!  I usually make a dozen at a time and take half to work with me to put in the freezer there.  Pop one in the microwave for a minute or two and YUMMY!  I really like that I know what is in it and I can customize it any way I choose.

 My fillings:
Spanish rice; I made it in my rice cooker
Ground beef, browned and seasoned
1 can chili beans
Shredded cheese
Sour cream mixed with my homemade salsa; you can use your favorite

I wrapped the whole stack of tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwaved them together for a minute.  Then, one at a time, I placed them on foil and filled and rolled.
Place the burritos into a freezer bag or the bag that the tortillas came in, put the date on it and put  in the freezer.  I have done this at least 10 times now!  I love that I have an instant meal when I'm tired and don't feel like cooking.  They heat up beautifully in the microwave.

I actually use pre-cut foil wrappers.  You can find them at Dollar General on their $1 isle.
