Freezer Meal: Chicken and Black Bean Burritos – Supper for a Steal

Freezer Meal: Chicken and Black Bean Burritos – Supper for a Steal

Well, friends, this is the end of my baby prep freezer meals. If you missed any in this little series here you can find my Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo. In addition to this, I also made and froze White Garlic Stuffed Shells. And I successfully reached my goal of not doing any real cooking for the first 4 weeks of Hadley’s life. Although now I look forward to getting in the kitchen a few times a week, we are still relying heavily on semi-homemade meals and what we have left in the freezer.

Chicken and Black Bean Burritos - Supper for a Steal

Homemade freezer burritos are so easy to make. Why haven’t I been keeping them around for years? Perfect for lunch or dinner. I know I will be whipping up another batch soon for grab-and-go lunches for the hubby.

I even made a few of these vegetarian with the leftover veggie enchilada filling (which I highly recommend, they were delish)

Our favorite way to reheat the burritos was in the toaster, then they get a little crispy, like a chimichanga, but in a pinch, the microwave works great, or I have even seen people press them on a panini grill (although I haven’t tried it myself)
