Bulking Up

What do you get when you have 6 lbs of ground beef, four cans of refried beans, a ton of taco seasoning, 40 flour tortillas and 40 strips of aluminum foil?

A fiesta?


You get 40 beef and bean burritos individually wrapped.

Just freeze and reheat when ready to eat.

No thawing necessary - yippee!!!

This is just one of many recipes that I've made from my new favorite cookbook: Fix Freeze Feast. I have been doing some serious chopping, simmering and mixing this summer. Every recipe I have made has been delish. I now have a freezer full of burritos, meatballs (like 100 people!), Mexican casseroles, garlic pork loins, balsamic basil pork chops (their recipe here), and Thai thighs (that sounds funny), and chicken cashews ...

Now I don't know about y'all but that's my kind of bulking up ;-)

Wow! What are you going to do now? I give you credit for cooking through all the heat. I've been quite the slug lately compared to you.

I wish there was a "like" button here... I'd definitely use it.

Great idea!

They sound delicious , I didn't realise you could freeze them already wrapped.... hope you are all having a nice summer x

I love it, and should totally check out that book because I'm constantly scrambling for meals in our house, too. Plus we just got an extra little freezer for the basement so that I can make burritos and freeze 'em too!

What a great idea!
Now when unexpected guests arrive you can just pull something yummy out of your freezer.
