These Bean and Cheese Freezer Burritos only cost .55 per serving and make a quick and frugal lunch or dinner on the go or at home!
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!
How to Make Bean and Cheese Freezer Burritos:
makes 12 burritos
Mix beans, cheese and Rotel in a medium sauce pot over low heat until combined and warmed. (If you prefer a thicker filling, then drain the Rotel.)
Cut 12 pieces of foil large enough to wrap burrito and lay them in a stack.
Lay a tortilla on top of the foil stack and add approx. 1/2 cup filling to the center.
Fold tortilla into burrito and wrap with foil.
Repeat steps 3 & 4 until all filling is used.
Place burritos in labeled gallon freezer bags and freeze until ready to serve. Burritos will last up to 3 months in the freezer.
Remove foil from frozen burrito and cook in the microwave 2-3 minutes or until warmed throughout. You may also cook in a toaster oven at 350 for 15 minutes or until hot in the center.
