Super Delish Burritos

The great thing about this recipe is that the burritos can be frozen and reheated as you need them.

Beef roast (any kind you like is fine, I usually use about 2-3 lbs worth)
1-2 can green chiles (depends on how spicy you like your food)
1 can of refried beans
1 package of large flour tortillas
1 block of monterey jack cheese (any cheese you prefer will do)
Assorted toppings of your choice such as lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado, salsa or taco sauce, mexican cheese, sour cream, etc...

Place salt and peppered meat, green chiles, and about 2 C of water in the crockpot. Cook your roast--I usually cook mine on high for 6-8 hrs. When roast is done cooking, shred with a fork. Remove all but about 1 C of the liquid from the crockpot. If this seems like too much liquid while addding the refried beans, you can always take more out. Add your refried beans and stir together in the crockpot. Warm tortillas in the microwave according to directions. Spoon beef mixture onto center of tortilla. Add a generous hunk of cheese on top of the burrito mixture.

Next, roll up your burrito. If you aren't sure how, check out these directions:

Once burritos have been rolled, I like to freeze them in a freezer storage bag until ready to use. Once frozen, they can be reheated in about 1.5 min. in the microwave. If serving them now, microwave the assembled burrito for about 25 seconds to melt the cheese. Top the burrito with your favorite ingredients, and ENJOY!

Serve with a salad or a mexican rice.
