I used to eat Amy’s frozen burritos all the time. Nothing is easier than popping a burrito in the microwave, burning the crap out of your mouth, and eating the entire thing in four bites. Now I’m trying to save money and lower my impact. It’s time that I create a replacement for my beloved $4 Amy’s burrito. (Recipe’s at the bottom!)
Black beans are the basis of this burrito and also my diet. They are incredibly easy to make with my Instant Pot. I can have a batch of beans go from dry to ready in less than an hour, no soaking required. If you don’t have an IP I recommend using a slow cooker overnight, and if not, canned beans will do.
For this recipe I included some sauteed zucchini for the healthy factor and roasted sweet potato for a complete meal. In all honesty I usually make these burritos with just beans and salsa (lazy) and still find them awesome.
I use store-bought salsa because I’m only human.
Walter is an expert burrito-roller so I leave that up to him.
After a spin in the microwave these burritos are not the most beautiful, but they are absolutely delicious. Having a batch of burritos in our freezer at all times has genuinely made my life a bit easier and has kept me from getting food delivered. I’m looking forward to make more freezer-friendly recipes.

These simple burritos are perfect for a fast and healthy dinner. Make them on a weekend and then unfreeze one after a busy day at work.
