These have been the handiest things to have stashed away in the freezer. We’ve eaten them for a quick lunch or when someone needs to have dinner at an odd time. The heat up in the microwave and taste great.
I read about the idea on the SC Johnson website in a post written by Sandy of The Reluctant Entertainer. She shared her method for freezer burritos, but didn’t share a recipe. I took her idea and decided to create a black bean and rice filling. In just a little time I had 20 delicious burritos in the freezer.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 3 cups uncooked rice
- 3 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
- 2 packages taco seasoning
- 8 oz Pepper Jack cheese, shredded
- 8 oz Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
- 20-25 burrito-sized tortillas (didn’t make it in the photo)
Cook the rice according to the package directions.
In a large bowl, stir the black beans and taco seasoning together. Add the cooked rice and cheeses, stirring to combine.
Fill the tortillas with the rice and beans. Wrap each burrito in plastic wrap and store in zip top freezer bags. I had enough filling to fill a few more burritos, but ran out of tortillas. I did put 20 burritos in the freezer.
To heat, microwave unwrapped on a plate. For our microwave, 1 minute and 45 seconds is a good amount of time. Serve with salsa if you like.
