Make Ahead Chicken Burritos

The name says it all...although, most burrito recipes can be adapted to freeze.

3 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
16 oz. jar salsa
14.5 oz can refried beans, fat free
4 oz. can green chilies, chopped and drained
1 package taco seasoning mix
12 wheat tortillas, warmed
16 oz. Monterrey Jack cheese, shredded

In a large skillet, combine the chicken, salsa, beans, chilies, seasoning, and water.  Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat; simmer; uncovered for 5 minutes or until heated through.  Spoon about 1/3 cup off-center on each tortilla; top with shredded cheese.  Wrap tortillas.  Wrap individually in foil.  Freeze up to 2 months.

To serve from frozen:
Place the frozen foil packets on a baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.  Can also be served with ranch dressing if desired.

12 servings
