Burritos are one of my favorite snacks, lunches, late night meals. They are meal that ALL of my family can agree on. All six kids! Well, we prefer different styles but making them tailored for each of us is a breeze.

Freezer Burritos can be customized to your preferences and taste delicious. The hubby prefers “the works” in his burrito – meat, beans, rice, onions, peppers, tomatoes. Most of that are foods that my daughter and I won’t eat! So we prefer a nice mellow bean & cheese version.

The burritos can be cooked in the microwave, wrapped in paper towels. Three and a half minutes are perfect for two in my microwave. I use my Mexican Seasoning because I prefer the taste but you can use a packet of taco seasoning.

On a side note: My hubby has taken these as his lunch for years. I whip up meals with rice & beans. I try to make them as fast as possible. So I use boxed Spanish rice and canned refried beans. You can certainly use homemade.
