Fill Your Freezer: Brown Bag Burritos

I made these Brown Bag Burritos during my very first freezer cooking attempt.  My husband loves that he can grab a few of these to take for lunch when there are no leftovers in the fridge.  I'm not a fan of food this spicy, but I love that the recipe makes so many burritos!!

This took care of 2 more pounds of my ground beef stockpile... 5 down, 15 to go!!  I threw the onions in with the beef instead of adding them later.

I had trouble getting the filling to simmer without making a huge mess.  Next time I'll probably make the filling in a stock pot instead.

I had two "taco kits" that needed to be used up - so I used the 20 teeny-tiny tortillas from those along with a pack of 10 regular-sized tortillas.  I still have a little less than half of the filling left.  I froze it until I can get to the store to buy more tortillas.  Hubby will have lunch for at least a month!!
