I’ve been on a freezer cooking kick lately. Have you checked out the list of my favorite freezer meals? It’s a good list of easy and convenient meals that I love! It’s nice to be prepared and have a fully stocked freezer full of meals on those days I’m too busy to cook, or too lazy. Ha! 🙂
Today I’m sharing a new favorite of ours. We love burritos and these ones are so delicious and freeze beautifully. When I make these I like to double the recipe, so I have a lot to freeze for later. My kids, hubby and I can’t get enough of these. They are awesome! 🙂
