 Homemade burritos 

**Best little burrito helper out there**

Homemade burritos are a great way to get a quick healthy lunch in during a busy work day.  I like them for days that I sub, they are a quick grab to put in my lunchbag.  They are perfect to take out of the freezer and microwave real fast.

What you will need: 

  • tacos shells ( I like to use whole wheat) 

For the filling there are lots of options.  The below recipe is what I recently used. 

Filling ingredients: 

  • refried beans
  • sweet potatoes 
  • peppers
  • black beans 

Other options to add: scrambled eggs, yogurt, meat 

First: Cut the veggies

Second: Cook the sweet potatoes, make sure they are tender 


Third: Add any other vegetables to cook together: 

Fourth:  Add the refried beans or any other filling you are using. 

Making the burritos

First: Lay out your saran wrap or wax paper.  

This mix will make about 10 tacos.  If you have room lay out a few shells at a time.  We used our bar and so made about 6 at a time.  

Second: Add a small amount of the filling to the middle of your taco shell. 

Third: Fold up the burrito.  

Fold in both sides, then fold the the bottom up and roll the burrito.

And there you have it!  Then wrap each burrito in Saran Wrap or wax paper and place in a ziplock bag and into your freezer.  Then you have at least 10 burritos in the freezer ready to grab when you need them.
