Freezer Burritos

Need a quick easy something to feed the famished! This is the ticket. On those days when you find yourself being the taxi driver to and from soccer, piano, basketball, choir, and guitar lessons you can pop one of these babies in the microwave for 2 minutes add some lettuce, sour cream, and whatever else your heart desires; and voila! Dinner is served. 


(I hope I can remember all I put in these; you see, that is the best part, you can customize them to be as mild or spicy as your taste buds crave!)
3 cans chili
3 cans ranch style beans
1 can re-fried beans
1 can black beans
1 can tomatoes with diced green chilies
1 pint of home bottled salsa (or any other kind you like)
2 pkg taco, burrito, or enchilada seasoning mix
1 large onion, chopped
2 lbs ground beef (or a mixture of sausage and beef)

Brown beef and onion. Drain off grease. Add all other ingredients. Mix in a large pot. Simmer for an hour or two. Remove from heat. Add 1 & 1/2 lbs grated cheese. Stir. Heat tortillas in microwave and place a heaping 1/2 C. bean mixture in the center. Roll them up and wrap in plastic wrap. Wait for them to cool. Place in the freezer. Pull them out as desired and heat in microwave for about 2 minutes. Makes about 36 depending on the size of tortilla and how much filling used in each one.
