Tight Wad in Utah: Burritos...again :)

Burritos...again :)

I made some freezer burritos a couple weeks ago and they are LONG gone.  So I made some more and tweaked the recipe a little and they are even better!  I also doubled the recipe this time.

2 breasts chicken, shredded
1 (7 or 8 oz.) can enchilada sauce (this time I used 1/2 c. taco sauce, you can also use salsa)
4 cups cheese
2 cans refried beans
18 - 20 small tortillas
7 oz can of green chilies - or use 2 smaller cans

Boil chicken and shred.  Mix all ingredients (except tortillas of course :) with 2 cups of cheese.  Spread mixture on tortilla and top with cheese.  Then tuck in sides, roll, wrap in papertowel, and put in labeled freezer bag.  DONE you have lunch or dinner for weeks! (or days..these are good!)

Reheat from frozen for 2 minutes and 22 seconds.  My husband swears by this number.  Or bake in oven at 350 for about 20 minutes.  Garnish with whatever you got.

Love freezer burritos! We make these with eggs and sausage for a quick grab and take breakfast.

These are perfect! My husband loves frozen burritos. (And how weird that my hubby also does certain times for microwave stuff. His magic number is 2 min. 21 seconds!)

Excellent idea. I have to try these for the grandkids in the house. They eat 24/7!

They really are good. No matter how many I make...they are gone within a week!
