Burritos For the Freezer

I've been saying I was going to share this recipe for a while now, but I just finally got around to making these during my freezer cooking day this weekend. I stumbled upon this recipe at Amy's Finer Things and it looked so easy and delicious that I thought it would fit in perfect to our meal plan. I changed a few things, but they were just as delicious as they sounded!

Burritos for the Freezer (Adapted from Amy's Finer Things)

  • 2 lb. Ground Turkey
  • 2 cans refried beans
  • 1 1/3 c. enchilada sauce (I make my own, I'll post this recipe as well)
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1/4 Cup onion, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 3 c. shredded Mexican cheese
  • 20 large flour tortillas

Brown ground turkey in a pan, drain and set aside. Add remaining ingredients (except tortillas), bring to a boil. Add turkey back to pan and mix to coat with sauce. Reduce heat and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.

Heat tortillas 3-4 at a time. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the mixture onto each tortilla and roll up like a burrito. Because I'm freezing these, I rolled them up in a paper towel first and then in foil for each one as Amy suggested in the original recipe. I found that you can unwrap the foil and then just pop the burrito in the microwave right in the paper towel to heat it up when you are ready to eat. It was very convenient!

I got exactly 20 burritos out of this recipe.
