Make ahead Burritos

Making burritos for the freezer are not only easy but fun to assemble. The kids and I have a great time playing our own version of Taco Bell. Each person has their own station and we race through the assembly process. They love it and I save a lot of time not having to assemble twenty or so burritos by myself!

All you need is large tortilla shells and whatever ingredients you have on hand in whatever combination pleases you: Taco meat, chicken or steak, rice, black beans, refried beans, black beans, salsa, rice, cheese, salsa.... After rolling the burritos place them directly into a freezer bag.

To cook place the frozen burritos directly in a greased baking dish and cover. Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes until burritos are soft and heated through.

These can be uncovered and topped with warm enchilata sauce and cheese and put back under the broiler until the cheese is melted. I've also served these on a bed of shredded lettuce topped with salsa and sour cream. Enjoy!!
