Crispy burritos filled with juicy Mexican Shredded Beef with a rich sauce, Mexican red rice and cheese. These are MADE for freezing - perfect standby meal! This recipe is for 8 burritos. However, 1 batch of Mexican Shredded Beef
makes enough for around 15 burritos. If you aren't freezing the burritos, feel free to add other things inside such as avocado, fresh salsa, pico de gallo, lettuce and tomato! (These are not suitable for freezing which is why I don't use them)
1. If I make the Mexican Shredded Beef ahead of time or a freeze it, I keep the sauce separate so the beef doesn't get too soggy. To make the burritos, you can either toss the beef in the sauce or you can simply drizzle sauce on the beef when you place it on the tortilla.
2. I only use beef, rice and cheese in this freezer friendly burrito because they freeze perfectly. My other favourite fillings include pico de gallo or just plain sliced/diced tomatoes, cilantro/coriander, avocado, salsa, sour cream (yes, I love putting sour cream in the burrito!) and lettuce. But none of these freeze well which is why I haven't included them in my freezer friendly burrito. :-)
3. This is how I roll a burrito - I am not very good and I put that down to having small hands! If you are stuffing the burritos with a lot of filling, like I usually do, I find it handy to use a knife to help hold the filling in place as I fold up the bottom.
