Crockpot Beef Burritos | 10 Meals in an Hour | Freezer Cooking | Main Course Meat | Meal Planning | Freezer Meals

Ready for another super easy freezer meal that your whole family will love?

If you read this blog regularly, you already know that I am a little obsessed with “cheater” freezer cooking. Not only are these simple meals quick & easy to throw together, they save us a ton of money on groceries (and especially on eating out.)  Better yet, they make our sometimes hectic weekdays SO much simpler! There is nothing better than knowing at the end of a crazy day that dinner is already in the crockpot!

DIG DEEPER


Freezer meals are fast, easy, and a great way to get a hot, delicious meal on the table on weeknights when cooking isn’t number one on your massive to-do list. Get started and see just how easy freezer cooking can be!

These flavorful beef burritos were a huge hit with both my husband and kids. To make them as part of a freezer cooking day, just split the meat & marinade into multiple bags, then throw it right into the freezer–no cooking required! Making it ahead of time is not necessary, though, as it is equally delicious just marinated at room temperature. You can also easily divide this recipe in half!

Assemble your ingredients: Chuck roasts, taco seasoning, Rotel tomatoes and onion.

Here is what you need:

2 small (2-3 pound) chuck roasts (or one 5-6 pound roast cut in half)
2 packets taco seasoning
3 10 oz cans Rotel tomatoes or diced tomatoes with chiles
1 onion
For cooking day:
flour tortillas
sour cream
salsa
avocado
shredded lettuce (optional)
Shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
 

Chop onion on wooden cutting board.

Step 1: Chop onion; set aside.

Mix together tomatoes, taco seasoning and onion.

Step 2: Mix together tomatoes and taco seasoning ; stir in onion and set aside.

Divide beef into 2 gallon size freezer bags with tomato mixture.

Step 3: Divide beef into 2 gallon size freezer bags ( be sure to label bags first.) Divide tomato mixture over top of beef.

Cook meat mixture in crockpot.

Step 4: Thaw if frozen; cook in crockpot on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours, until beef falls apart easily with a fork. (Note:  Thawing is not absolutely necessary–you can also cook from frozen, just add an additional hour or two in the crockpot.)

Serve with tortillas, sour cream, salsa, lettuce, cheese and avocado.

Step 5: Serve with tortillas, sour cream, salsa, lettuce, cheese, and avocado.

    I am sooooo going to try this recipe. Looks so easy and so delicious! Perfect for whacking in the crockpot in the morning on swimming lesson day, then it’s all ready to assemble when we get home. I can’t wait!

    I love this idea, burritos, fajitas and tacos are all one of our favorite meals as a family. Oh yeah and quesidillas too, you know mexican grilled cheese – hey as long as the kids eat it, right?. I haven’t started it yet, but my husband and I are looking at starting a freezer cooking night at home, and this convinced me that I need to try it sooner rather than later. My husband agreed to help, but maybe that’s because he’s the better cook. Well either way, this will be awesome, thank you for another great one Ruth!

    Do the two bags represent two separate meals or should it all be cooked together?

      The two bags represent 2 separate meals. 🙂
