Microwavable Bean & Cheese Burritos in the Freezer

Microwavable Bean & Cheese Burritos in the Freezer


  • Tortillas
  • Cheese
  • Optional Ingredients Include Salsa, Guacamole, Onions, Bell Peppers, Sour Cream, Chicken, Beef, Tomatoes, or anything else you can think of.


  • I start with my homemade refried black beans. The link to the recipe is above. The slow cooker really does all the work, but if that isn’t easy enough, you can buy pre-made refried beans.
  • Take your soft tortilla and add a scoop of refried black beans. Add as much or as little as you prefer, just leave room for folding.
  • Add cheese. Again, add as much or as little as you prefer.
  • I usually stop here because my husband prefers his salsa on the side, but you can add anything else you want. Just remember to leave room for folding up your burrito.
  • You will fold both ends. One end is shown folded above, but both ends are done in the same fashion.
  • Next, you bring one side over and roll until it is closed as above.
  • Wrap each burrito in parchment paper or wax paper to keep them from sticking. Place them into a freezer bag and label.
