Freezer-Friendly Veggie Burritos

Makes 12 burritos
These vegetarian burritos are filling, tasty, and come together quickly. Stash them in your freezer for an easy lunch option (they’ll thaw perfectly by the time you’re ready to eat). If you’re missing the meat, add in shredded cooked chicken breast before wrapping and freezing.

    • 3 To assemble burritos, spoon ½ cup of filling onto a tortilla. Sprinkle with cheese and roll to close. 
    • 4 Wrap burritos in freezer paper and use masking tape to close. Place wrapped burritos in a labeled, Ziploc® brand Gallon Freezer bag and freeze.
    • 5 To reheat: unwrap burrito from freezer paper and cover loosely with a paper towel. Microwave on high for 90 seconds. Flip the burrito and microwave for an additional 90 seconds, or until the filling is hot.
