Save money and sodium when you make a batch of homemade frozen burritos. Mashing the beans and mixing them with tomatoes, cheese and jalapeños before filling the healthy burritos means you get all the ingredients in each bite. Serve with your favorite toppings--we like sour cream, salsa and hot sauce.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mash beans in a large bowl with chili powder and cumin until almost smooth. Add cheese, tomatoes, scallions, jalapeños and cilantro; stir to combine.

  • Spread about 1/2 cup of the filling on the bottom third of each tortilla and top with about 1/4 cup rice. Roll up snugly, tucking in the ends as you go. If serving immediately, transfer to a microwave-safe plate, cover with a paper towel and microwave on High until steaming hot, 1 to 2 minutes. If freezing, wrap each burrito in foil. Freeze for up to 3 months.

  • To heat: Remove a burrito from the foil and place on a microwave-safe plate. Cover with a paper towel and microwave on High until steaming hot, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes.


To make ahead: Freeze foil-wrapped burritos for up to 3 months.
