Making Soy-Free Burritos... For Lunch!

Hello! Welcome to Beyond Soy!

A few weeks ago, we talked about baked potatoes as a great soy-free lunch option. Before we landed on baked potatoes, we tried plenty of other foods to see how easy they were to take for lunch. Today, we’ll share one of these foods that we’ve tried in our quest for quick and easy lunches: frozen burritos. 

Since soy-free pre-packaged frozen burritos are probably very difficult to find (honestly, we didn’t even look for them) because the frozen section is full of processed foods, we jumped straight to making our own at home. We originally got this idea from a post on Delicious Simplicities and have modified the recipe to suit our burrito preferences. Since the ingredients are pretty simple, it is easy to make changes to suit your individual taste.

We make these frozen burritos batch style. On a Sunday afternoon we’ll make a month’s worth of burritos all at once, package them individually, throw them in the freezer, and then pull them out one-by-one when we are ready to eat them. These burritos are a great complement to the baked potatoes and we plan to keep making more of them to have an easy, soy-free lunch option on hand.

What You’ll Need:

  • 3 lbs ground beef
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 2 16 oz cans of black beans
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • 8 oz cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 30 tortillas (make sure they are soy-free!)
  • Aluminum foil
  • Ziplock sandwich bags

What To Do:

  1. Brown the ground beef
  2. Add garlic powder, taco seasoning, and beans
  3. Stir until well mixed
  4. Fill each tortilla with your preferred ratio of beef/bean mixture and rice
  5. Top each tortilla with shredded cheese
  6. Roll each tortilla, wrap in aluminum foil, and place in an individual ziplock bag before freezing
