I like refried beans. My husband does not. So I don’t serve them often…okay, practically ever. Except I do make bean burritos for lunch. But since I’m making burritos for 1 person, a can of beans can last f-o-r-e-v-e-r. So, I’ve learned to make a big batch at one time and freeze them. Then when I want one for lunch, just pop it out of the freezer and into the microwave.
It’s a big stretch to call this a recipe. Basically, it’s:
Step 1: Spread some refried beans on a tortilla. Just down the middle. Not too much. Not too little.
Step 2: Pour a little bit of salsa on top of the beans.
Step 3: Put a little cheese on top. Try some cheddar or for some kick, Pepper Jack.
Step 4: Fold the burrito. Fold the “bottom” and “top” in, then fold the sides in.
Step 5: Repeat til there aren’t any more beans.
Step 6: Lay them on a cookie sheet. ”Seam” side down!
Step 7: Put in freezer. Freeze for a couple of hours.
Step 8: Take out of freezer, put in freezer-safe ziploc baggie.
To eat: Put on a plate and microwave for 2-3 minutes or so until all is melty.
