I love my freezer. I love that I can buy bulk perishable foods (hello costco), stash it in my freezer, and not have to worry about waste. I also love having frozen back up meals in the case where, let's say, I don't feel like cooking. Anyone....anyone?
This week I made a batch of freezer burritos. These little gems are the perfect addition to a don't-want-to-cook weeknight or perhaps if you're expecting a little one soon and want to stock up (OK, that last one is just me).
It does take some time, but the results just blow my socks off. Imagine this: dinner in less than 5 minutes. Aaah, serenity. Thankfully, the word "burrito" is not necessarily a synonym for "unhealthy". Choose nutritious ingredients and - as always - keep portions on the small side.
Step 1. Gather your ingredients
I went the bean, cheese and avocado route.
Step 2. Assemble and stack.
Step 3. Wrap in foil and freeze
My goal was to make these for "emergencies", but in truth they're so delicious I don't think they'll make it that long. Oh well, I'll just have to make more.
