Burritos are great for breakfast, lunch or dinner it's fast, portable, and can be ready in under 2 minutes by freezing it ahead.These are not only easy to make but also freeze well, and give you complete control over what's inside
Take sometime on Sunday to make and freeze a batch of your favorite burritos, then enjoy a hot and incredibly filling meal anytime all week long, that only takes 2 minutes .
These are the BEST and will keep you full for hours!You can fill your burritos with whatever ingredients you like best,these are easy on the budget and a perfect make-ahead idea from leftover too.Just divide your leftovers evenly among the tortillas, wrap tightly in foil, and freeze, Voila.
Assemble Your Burrito:- Lay large (8″) flour tortillas out on a clean surface & Divide the fillings evenly between the tortillas.
Roll the burritos :- By folding over the top of the tortilla, folding in the sides, then rolling to the end.
Prepare To Freeze :-Wrap each one in plastic wrap then, if the ingredients inside differ, mark the outside with the initials.After wrapping i usually put then in a freezer in a tray for 1 hour or so until it firms up.Date and label a freezer bag, then place the burritos inside and freeze.
How To Reheat The Frozen Burrito:-When you’re ready to eat, Remove a breakfast burrito from your freezer about five to 10 minutes before breakfast(if possible:). Unwrap the burrito and place it on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave the burrito on medium-high for two to three minutes or until thoroughly heated. Add condiments, such as vgean sour cream or chipotle dressing, after the burrito is heated.
OPTIONAL STEP:- Unwrap the burrito & microwave on microwave safe plate for 1 minute , then Coat an 8-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium to medium-high heat.Transfer the burrito to the hot skillet (seam side down ) and cook until light brown, carefully flip the burrito and cook the another side. ( this step can be skipped if you have cooked tortilla, mine was not cooked).
Wrap in foil if desired. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas
Breakfast is served!..Enjoy :)
1)Whenever making burrotis keep the ingredients simple and flavorful. Rice, beans, sautéed vegetables,roasted potatoes and/or a sprinkle of vegan cheese will do the trick.
2) DO NOT ADD fresh vegetables, like fresh tomatoes or lettuce as they don't take freeze well.
3) Allow your burrito filling to cool, place it in a warm tortilla, wrap the burrito and let the tortilla cool to room temperature. Freezing hot burritos can cause uneven freezing, which can alter the texture and taste of the food.
4)Ideal way to freeze your wraps once you've made them is to wrap them in foil, then tightly wrap them again in plastic wrap. Doing both may create a lot of waste, but it ensures that your precious burritos aren't exposed to freezer air, and your food doesn't spoil or get freezer burned before you get a chance to eat it. ( I didn't do this way as i used double sided freezer bags )
5)You can also thaw burritos in the refrigerator overnight, then wrap each in foil and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes until hot. The thawed burritos can also be deep fried for 3-5 minutes until golden brown and crisp.
6)If frozen carefully, the burritos can last for a year.( It will be gone wayyyy before that i promise..:)
