I’ve been trying out various recipes like Cheesy Easy Burritos because my son absolutely loves burritos. He’s home all day right now doing remote high school so I have to keep track of everything he’s eating. If I let him, he will eat burritos for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We go through a lot of packages of the frozen burritos but I would prefer he have a homemade choice as possible. These put together quickly, easily and are easy to reheat.
I need a large saucepan, wooden spoon and nice large 13×9 inch casserole dish. I often use leftover rice. I’ve used chicken flavored rice, long grain rice and even minute rice. It all works. You could even swap out canned beans or canned corn instead of rice. If you prefer to not use Velveeta you can replace with 1 1/2 Cups of shredded cheddar or colby/cheddar mix tightly packed. A little bit of precooked chicken or pork would be a great addition as well.
We use a mild chunky salsa because that is what my children like. If you want a hotter burrito use the hottest salsa you can find. They also make a Mexican Mild and Mexican Hot Velveeta that would be a great way to add some spunk. I have even made it using my homemade Slow Cooker refried beans instead of canned refried beans.
Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Tacos is another great Frugal recipe to try!
