To FREEZE California BURRITOS:

  • Cool Filling:  Let carne asada and French Fries cool otherwise you will end up with soggy tortillas.
  • Assemble:  Assemble California Burritos per instructions.
  • Foil:  Wrap individual  burritos up tightly in foil.
  • Freeze:  Freeze burritos in a single layer on a baking sheet.  This will help them freeze faster and not get squished.
  • Store:  Add frozen burritos to a large freezer size bag, remove excess air and seal.  Freeze for up to 3 months.
  • Bake:  Remove frozen California Burritos from foil and place on a baking rack.  Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until completely warmed through and toasted.
  • Microwave:  Remove chicken burritos from foil.  Microwave for approximately 4 minutes or until warmed through.  If you want to crisp up your microwaved burritos, then you can broil in the oven or pan sear per instructions.
