Frequently Asked Questions

If we plan to eat in the next few days, should I skip the freezing step?

I always freeze unless I am serving these the same day. They keep much better once frozen and the tortillas don’t get soggy. But, if you are eating them immediately or within 24 hours, you could skip freezing.

What else can I add to these burritos?

Just about anything you would like! We often add things like mushrooms and beans. That is a great way to put some dinner leftovers to good use. 

How to fold a burrito?

You can warm the tortilla slightly, to make it a bit more flexible. Then, place your ingredients in the center in a line. Fold the sides of the tortilla over the filling, then roll the other side of the tortilla over the filling, tucking and tightening as you roll. Wrap in aluminum immediately after and it will hold its shape in the freezer!
