New Meal Fridays #80 ~ Make-ahead burritos

Made: November 3rd 2011

From: Fall Freezer Meals ~ 2011

3 cups of shredded cooked chicken or beef
1 jar of salsa
1 can of re-fried beans
1 can of chopped green chilies, drained
1 envelope burrito seasoning
1/2 cup of water
16 tortillas warmed
16 oz Monterrey jack cheese, cut into 5inch by 1/2 inch strips
Ranch dressing, optional

1 - In a large skillet, combine the meat, salsa, beans, chilies, seasoning and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until heated through.

2 - Spoon about 1/3 cup off-center on each tortilla; top with a cheese strip. Fold edge of tortilla nearest filling over to cover. Fold ends of tortilla over filling and roll up. Wrap individually in aluminum foil. Freeze for up to 2 months.

Place the frozen foil packets on a baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 50 minutes. If thawed, bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve with ranch dressing if desired.

Miranda's Mix Ups: No chilies but everything else the same. the boys LOVE LOVE LOVE this meal. Q ate more than Kyler (which doesn't happen ever right now!). IT was great. I've made it 2 or 3 more times since then!
