How to Roll a Burrito

I learned from watching employees at a very popular restaurant the easy way to roll burritos. Let me share with you how to get that no-leak burrito in your freezer.

  • Fold in about one inch of tortilla on two sides.

  • Roll over an unfolded side and tuck in around the filling making sure the folded sides stay tight.
  • Continue to roll the burrito and place open side down.

How to Freeze

Once you have all your tortillas filled, put the cookie sheet in the freezer for two hours. Once frozen, stack in a freezer bag. Each gallon freezer bag holds about six burritos.

How to Reheat

When you’re ready to enjoy them, heat them up in the microwave!  I microwave mine on high for 1.5 minutes, flip it upside down and microwave for an additional 1.5 minutes.  The edges will dry if you leave them uncovered.  If you wrap your burrito in a paper towel it will stay more moist.  I personally like a crispy edge, so I let it do it’s thing.

It’s an easy breakfast on the go and you know every single ingredient in these breakfast burrito recipe!  My husband just grabbed one out of the freezer this morning on his way out the door to reheat at work!

Enjoy!

    This sounds really good and since I really like breakfast burritos I will definitely be trying this. Thank you!

  2. Vera Moore says:

    I make them up like this quite a bit, with our without salsa. This last time I made the breakfast burritos with ground beef taco meat (kicked up with extra cayenne and a can of green chilies) and topped each with shredded cheddar cheese (after cooling the mixture and before rolling up). Wrapped individually in foil, I can pull out what we need from the freezer bag and heat in the oven at 350 for 40 minutes.

    1. Yum! I like the idea of the ground beef taco meet. I am going to try that.

  3. When reheating do you thaw first or heat from frozen?

      1. Vera Moore says:

        I reheat from frozen at 350 for 40 minutes. No need to thaw.

    1. Hi Heather. You do not need to thaw first. I typically wrap them in a paper towel right out of the freezer and microwave them. They come out delicious!

  4. You have the most impressive online sites

  5. This sounds delicious and I plan to try it! Please don’t take offense, but it might be confusing to your readers that you have burritos listed in your ingredient list. I think what you mean is tortillas. Hope you find this helpful.

    1. Thanks Karen! You’re right. I should have put tortillas. Thanks for catching that!

  6. have you ever done this without hashbrowns? wonder if it would be soggy?

    1. Hi! I have not tried it without hashbrowns, but I can’t see why it wouldn’t work. They might be a bit thin so you could add black beans or rice to stretch it a bit.

    2. I have not made without hashbrowns, but I don’t see why you couldn’t. You could always substitute rice as well.
