These 5-ingredient vegetarian freezer burritos are perfect for making a big batch of and then having for lunches throughout the week. I have just recently discovered the power of the freezer burrito, having a delicious burrito all ready to go and warm in a few minutes – it’s amazing!
Whomever I tell about my amazing ‘new’ discovery laughs at me because apparently everyone else has known about the magic of freezer burritos for years and has been keeping it a secret from me? Whatever the reason that I’m so late to this trend, I don’t care. I am serious in love with it.
Freezer burritos are great, you take half an hour one day to assemble them, and then store them in the freezer. Then, when you’re in need of a quick lunch, all you do is go to your freezer, take out a burrito and warm it and viola, you have yourself a delicious burrito.
Can I share something weird with you guys? I really don’t like the taste of microwaved meat, especially chicken! It’s so bad, but I just simply cannot eat it, the flavor isn’t the same and it just grosses me out, so when it comes to microwaving lunches, I’m ALL ABOUT VEGETARIAN options, which is why I made these freezer burritos vegetarian.
They’re filled with a delicious combination of black beans, brown rice, salsa and cheese, and then wrapped in a super soft burrito.
My hubby helped make the burritos as you can see above! Major props to him this week – it’s been so crazy busy, and he even brought me dinner when I was having a super late meeting this week, it was super sweet.
After you make your burritos, you wrap them in plastic wrap and store them in a ziplock bag in the freezer. Then when you need lunch, you just take it out of the freezer and microwave it (I shared on snapchat, username: sweetphi me enjoying these vegetarian freezer burritos this week!)
