Brown Bag Burritos

I am not sure why they are called Brown Bag Burritos other than the fact that they are so easy to throw in your lunch bag and head out to work with them.  When we freezer cook, these are a "staple."  ALL of our children like them- that's saying A LOT when you are cooking for a total of 8 kiddos.

2 lbs ground turkey, browned
2 cans refried beans
2 cans enchilada sauce
1/2 c water
1/3 c onion, diced
1 packet taco seasoning (or make your own)
1 tsp oregano
2 c shredded Cheddar
20 tortilla shells

Combine all ingredients except tortillas and cheese.
Mix remaining ingredients together.
Spoon 1/4 cup mixture into the center of each tortilla shell and sprinkle with cheese.  Fold sides in and roll up tightly.

Freezer Directions
Wrap each burrito in foil and freeze in freezer Ziploc bags.  These can be stored 2-3 months, but we NEVER have them that long.  They are normally one of the first things to be gone.

To serve, pull out desired number of burritos. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until heated through.  You can also microwave individual burritos with foil removed for 1-2 minutes depending on the power of your microwave.  (That's how we do it since these are a quick dinner or lunch on the go.  Perfect for when everyone needs to be somewhere fast or is eating at all different times.)  Feel free to add  your favorite toppings- sour cream, salsa, lettuce, etc...

Make 20 servings
