When my oldest daughter left home to live on her own, one of my biggest worries was if she was eating well. So I started making 6-8 breakfast burritos, which I froze to send to her. This was an easy way for her to start the day with a rica meal. The only thing she had to do was heat the burritos in the microwave, and go! This is ideal for people that don’t have time to cook every day. Try this recipe and enjoy! MORE + LESS -
