Since our children are grown and on their own now we freeze the ones we don’t eat and simply warm them up for about 20 minutes when we want to enjoy a delicious and nutritious meal.

    These burritos are so good and the ingredients so affordable that they can easily fit into anyone’s meal budget. If you don’t have pinto beans on hand, feel free to use other types of beans as well. All of the varieties of beans that we have tried so far have worked well with this recipe and can add a hint of freshness to the recipe over time.

    You just can’t go wrong feeding your family great tasting food that also keeps them healthy. We would love to know if you add this to your regular meal rotation as we have done in our own household.
