Freezer burritos are a fantastic way to not only use up leftovers but also to guarantee that you’re going to always have a super quick lunch or snack to hand whenever you need one!
**I’m going to start by apologising for the photos of the freezer burritos which really aren’t great – it was the greyest day outside when I was taking them and I really wasn’t expecting to share these on here as a separate post so I didn’t do any faffing. I had planned to just share them on a five frugal things weekly post but they went down so well that I decided they deserved their own post.**
I made a huge batch of these freezer burritos yesterday and couldn’t believe it when everyone in the house gravitated towards the kitchen to investigate what the smell was and to have a try. Even Master Frugal took over the kitchen for a while and made a few of his own minus the salsa and the sweetcorn using tomato ketchup instead.
(I know, I’ve totally failed as a parent, right? 😂 )
Honestly, it tastes way better than it looks!
These freezer burritos are super tasty, easy to make and a great way to batch cook some lunches. These freezer burritos freeze so well (as the name suggests) wrapped in baking paper and can be reheated from frozen - either 2-3 minutes in the microwave or around 15 mins in the oven.

I’ve wrapped the leftovers up individually in greaseproof paper and popped them in the freezer ready to go when I need a quick lunch or snack. Freezer burritos for the win.
I’m even considering cooking some in a spicy Mexican tomato sauce for an enchilada style tea for us all.
