Burrito Obsessed

I find myself in a dinner jam more and more often. I don’t know what it is, but some days, I just can’t get my act together to get a nutritious and fulfilling meal on the table for my family. I vowed to make a list of freezer friendly foods that I could make, freeze and grab when I’m in a dinner funk.

My husband is burrito obsessed! So making some freezer friendly burritos helps me on my funk filled days and satisfies his burrito obsession.–So before I go any further…let me take back what I said above about ‘a nutritious and fulfilling meal’- fulfilling…yes- nutritious…not so much.

I added green peppers to some of the burritos, but neglected to add them to the ingredient picture.
I only added black beans to some of the burritos-I thought with both the refried beans and the black beans, it might have been bean overload!


1 lbs. fresh ground turkey
1 (16oz) can refired beens
1 (15.25oz) can of corn
1 (10oz) can enchilada sauce
1 (15.5oz) can black beans
1 green bell pepper
10 Large Burrito Tortilla Gordita Style Wraps
8 oz Shredded Cheddar
Plastic Wrap- I used Press and Seal
Wax Paper

Brown ground turkey in pan till no longer pink. Drain fat. Place in a bowl.

In a medium sized bowl- mix together the refried beans, enchilada sauce, cheese and corn.

If using green peppers dice and sauté in a tiny amount of butter in the same pan that the turkey was cooked in.

Remove tortilla wraps from package, place on microwave safe plate, cover with a moist paper towel and heat in microwave for 30 seconds. Doing this allows for easier rolling and less breaking.

Place ingredients into center of wrap.

Fold in the sides of the wrap (they will overlap),take wrap side closest to you and pull over two sides that you just folded and overlapped, then begin to roll. Try your best to keep all loose edges tucked in. Place wraps on wax paper lined baking sheet.

Place wraps in freezer for one hour to flash freeze.

After the hour in the freezer, remove the wraps and tightly wrap in plastic wrap. Label a large plastic zip lock bag with the contents and the date that they were made. I neglected to take a photo of my burrito bag- I included a picture of the bag that I use for our breakfast burritos.

To heat burritos- Remove from plastic wrap, rinse quickly under a running tap- making sure to wet the entire burrito- place on microwave safe plate and heat for 3 minutes. Every microwave is different, you are aiming to heat the burrito all the way through. My husband and I LOVE these burritos- He eats them plain, I prefer mine with a large dollop of sour cream! Yummy!
