Burritos are one of our favorite items to have for snacks, lunches, and dinners. They are also great for freezing.
Here’s a video that I made two years ago explaining how I fold the burritos so that they stay a nice neat package. Don’t laugh — it’s an old vlog.
I typically make 3-4 dozen at a time. It works best if all your ingredients are room temperature, especially the tortillas. You can avoid cracking and tearing that way. Chill the burritos in the refrigerator before freezing them.
I usually just put the rolled burritos in a large freezer bag, but plenty of folks wrap them in waxed paper, plastic wrap, or aluminum foil. Wrapping the burrito is handy if you’re going to pack them into lunches or are concerned that they might stick together in one bag. I have only had this happen once ever.
