Smothered Burritos

These are so stupid easy. As long as you’ve already done your prep work.

Remember when I posted about homemade frozen burritos that were dirt cheap and actually healthy? Yeah. Did you make some? If not: do it now. You can thank me later.

Now. For the rest of y’all … take your homemade frozen burritos …

… and pull them out of the freezer. Ready? Here we go.

You will need:

Frozen burritos(please use homemade, pretty please)
Jar of your favorite salsa
Monterrey Jack cheese (about a cup)


Cook your frozen burritos in the microwave until they are thawed … not screaming hot and exploding with cheesy goodness … just until they’re thawed. Placed them in a greased casserole dish, lined up like enchiladas. Dump your favorite salsa on top (like it were enchilada sauce). Then coat the top with Monterrey Jack cheese. Bake in the oven at 350* until the cheese is bubbly and starts to brown. If it’s taking too long for you, flip it to broil for about 30 seconds at the end and that cheese will brown up nicely. Just watch it closely. See? That was like 5 minutes to prepare (assuming you’ve done the previous prep work on a cold rainy day when you had nothing better to do but roll burritos, anyway). Easiest. Dinner. Ever. Especially if you’re super fast, cheap, and easy and opt for store bought frozen burritos. But remember: I don’t really condone that nonsense. ;)

Yes. You’ll notice there is chicken in my salsa … I had thrown a few chicken breasts in the crockpot with salsa to cook all day. What the heck … go crazy!! I highly recommend it!!!! ;)
