**Disclaimer – it is virtually impossible to get a good picture of a rolled up (cracked) burrito. Really, it is. Hindsight – probably should’ve taken pictures of the burrito cooked**
This recipe / idea has been brewing in my head for months. Ever since we bought some frozen burritos from CostCo, I thought “hey, I could do that.” So, I did!
You can make these however you’d like, I just used these 3 things because they’re simple and yummy. But you could do cooked rice, salsa, beef, pork, whatever!
I like to make foods one day in bulk and then it lasts us for a while. These will be for me for lunch during the week while at home because you can only eat so many sandwiches and I am not a fan of leftovers.
A tip for you – when rolling your burritos, zap them in the microwave while wrapped in a damp paper towel. It makes a HUGE difference. In true Melanie fashion, I discovered this when I had already done half of them. Also, I put my filling in favoring one side instead of in the middle. I felt it was easier to roll it tight that way. Again, found this out when I had about 2 burritos left.
Aaaaaanywho, here we go.
Ingredients (again, you can do whatever! But here’s what I did)
*16 12 inch flour tortillas
*2 cans of refried beans
*One block (8 oz) of cheddar cheese, shredded)
*3 cups of chopped taco chicken (I cooked 4 chicken breasts in some water and taco seasoning in my trusty crock pot, then chopped them all up)
*Umm, make burritos 😉 I layered beans, chicken, cheese. When I got to the end, I ran out of chicken so I did a few with just beans and cheese. Which is fine by me! And I’m the only one that’s going to be eating them.
*Bake at 350 for 10 minutes if it’s thawed, or 25-30 minutes frozen.
Next time I will try other stuff inside of them!
