The other day I mentioned freezer meals. I have been reading a cookbook I got on amazon called "Fix, Freeze, Feast". Well, I did two meals all on my own yesterday. I made a honey chicken that is good for three meals. And I made beef and cheese burritos. They were awesome! (if I do say so myself:)
I'll tell ya about them, cuz I know you are dying to find out:)
First you need wax paper, tortillas, salsa con queso, taco meat, and some shredded cheese. Here's a pic just in case you are having trouble visualizing what any of those things are.
First, I tore off 12 -12x12- sheets of wax paper. They really could be smaller than that if you didn't want to waste it. But I wanted to make sure all of my burritos were covered, because there is not much I hate more than freezer burnt food.
Then you make a taco. Salsa con queso, meat, cheese. Oh, I had made my taco meat earlier in the week. I didn't have any taco seasoning so I used a can of Rotel and some water. I actually like that taste way better than any taco seasoning I've tried. There is about 5 pounds of hamburger there.
Roll her up like a burrito, then roll the wax paper around her the same way.
I placed 12 in a gallon freezer bag. Labeled them. And did 3 more gallon bags of them.
That's right, I ended up with 48 burritos:)
The best thing about these is that you can take one or two right out of the freezer and heat them in the microwave for about 1.5 mins and you're ready to eat! Therefore this makes them great for lunch time at our house! The boys like them a lot too!
