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.


Ingredients:
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.

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!)
And I was just informed that it has to be at 80% power...lol. Men are funny..(weird :)
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!
Wow! I've never thought of this... I love the idea! I can't believe I've been throwing away molded tortillas for so long...... I'm definitely going to try this soon!!! Thanks!!!
Your welcome! I love how well they freeze!! I hate wasting food. Sometimes mine would go bad too. No more!! :)

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
