  • 12 burrito sized tortillas
  • 2 cans refried beans
  • 2 cans Rotel do not drain
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  • Mix beans, cheese and Rotel in a medium sauce pot over low heat until combined and warmed. (If you prefer a thicker filling, you should 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.


For serving: Remove foil from frozen burrito and cook in microwave 2-3 minutes or until warmed throughout. You may also cook in a toaster oven at 350 for 15 minutes or until burrito is hot in the middle.
