Foodie Friday: Freezer Burritos

Here is another freezer recipe. The great thing about this one is that you can individually wrap the burritos and reheat them as needed. They are even better than the ones you can buy at the store and just as convenient.

-3 c. shredded cooked chicken or beef
-1 jar (16 oz) salsa
-1 can (16 oz) refried beans
-1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies, drained
-1 envelope burrito seasoning
-1/2 c. water
-16 flour tortillas (8 in), warmed
-16 oz Monterey Jack cheese (shredded)

In a large skillet or saucepan, combine meat, salsa, beans, chilies, seasoning and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 min. until heated through.
Spoon about 1/3 c. off-center on each tortilla; top with cheese. Fold edge of tortilla nearest filling over to cover. Fold ends of tortilla over filling and roll up. Wrap individually in aluminum foil. Freeze up to 2 months.

Reheating Instructions:
Place foil packets on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until heated through. If thawed, bake for 25-30 minutes.
