Freezable Chicken Burritos

AuthorThe Batch Lady

A Burrito is a soft warm tortilla that is wrapped up and contains fillings such as chicken, beef, pork, rice etc
Burritos can be hard to make in small portions as they require so many ingredients, thus it’s a perfect thing to batch and put in your freezer.

Standard batch serves 4

Yields1 Serving
 4 Tortillas (wraps)
 1 can of refried beans
 1 cup of Rice
 3 chicken breasts
 ½ cup of frozen pre-chopped onion
 1 tub of Salsa
 1 cup grated Cheese
1

Method
Chop and cook the chicken in a frying pan over a medium heat, about 10-12 mins. Allow this to cool while getting everything else ready
Next cook the rice as per packet instructions, and allow to cool to room temp
Warm the tortillas in the microwave for 20 seconds
If you plan to freeze your tortillas, you want everything to be at room temperature as you assemble them. This will stop you getting soggy burritos when you defrost them.

Take 1 tortilla, in the middle of it add a tablespoon of beans, some chicken, 1 table spoon of salsa, a sprinkling of onion and a sprinkling of cheese.

Wrap the burrito as shown in my video.

Ready to Eat
Unwrap and reheat the Burrito in the microwave for 4 minutes, or in the oven at 180°C for 30 minutes, turning over ½ way through either of the methods. Serve when piping hot.

Make sure that reheated food is thoroughly cooked all the way through. If you’re cooking or reheating meat, cut it open with a clean knife to check it is piping hot all the way through – it should be steaming. www.foodsafe.eu
