Chicken and Black Bean Burritos

Disclosure: This post may contain an affiliate link.

I like having burritos in the freezer because they make such a quick and easy meal.  We either eat them for dinner or when the kids want something different for lunch.

Ingredients
Shredded Chicken
Cooked Black Beans (mine were from freezer)
Shredded Cheese (I used cheddar)
Salsa
Burrito Size Tortillas

*I used lots of beans and a little bit of chicken

Combine all ingredients on tortilla shells
Form into burritos
Freeze

You can either thaw before cooking or take them straight from the freezer to the oven or microwave.

I ate one for lunch yesterday and it was yummy!

*UPDATE*

Froze well just in a gallon Ziploc bag.  If you’re freezing for longer than a month, I’d suggest wrapping in foil

    yummy idea!!! I think I'll give these a shot this week (freezing them) What do you wrap them in? Foil, plastic?

    Ha! You caught that. When I make the Brown Bag Burritos I wrap them in a paper towel then foil (so I can reuse the foil). I then put multiples back in the tortilla bag or a gallon freezer bag.

    I noticed on some other sites that they just place the burritos in a bag together without individual wrapping. These didn't seem as messy so that's what I did. I think they should be okay, but I know they won't be in there for longer than a month. I'll report back if they seem to need foil.
