Bean and Cheese Freezer Burritos (Only .55 per serving!)

 I try not to buy a lot of convenience foods because they’re expensive and usually not healthy, but I also like to have fast and easy options on hand for when we need food in a hurry.

That’s why I whipped up a batch of these bean and cheese freezer burritos mainly for my husband to grab for an easy lunch when he doesn’t have any leftovers to take.

 I’ve been putting off making these for a long time, but once I started it went really quick.

I love filling my freezer with homemade food because it saves me time and money. Plus, it’s healthier for my family than fast food or prepackaged frozen meals.

I bought all of the ingredients at Aldi and ended up spending only .55 per burrito. You could use the small taco size tortillas to make them smaller and even cheaper, but these are for my husband so I went with the medium or burrito size tortilla.

I really love this recipe for Bean and Cheese Burritos because they’re quick and easy to make, plus they make a frugal and filling meal for lunch or dinner and they’re easily portable.

Just heat the frozen burritos in the microwave or toaster oven and you’ve got a homemade meal ready to go anytime. I know you’re going to love this recipe and want to make these burritos again and again. Enjoy!

  1. This is great but I use either extra sharp cheddar or Monterrey Jack Cheese. Also, add chopped onions and a bit of ground taco instead of rotel to make it more authentic.

    4 stars

  2. Just so I make sure to get my ratios correct, how many ounces are the cans of beans you use? Mine look smaller, so I want to adjust as necessary!
  3. I like your site I am 35 living on my own i am a male I want to get some simple cheap meals I can save money to get clothes in go to new york next year I always spend alot money on food can you send me some meals in My email thank in God bless
  4. My husband and I decided to try this first time out using 1can of refried beans, 1can of Rotel with the cheese heating it in the microwave. It came out quite good. We just added some onion powder and some Pico Pica for a little heat. Next time we will do the regular recipe, and freeze some which was the whole point anyway. A keeper I think.
