Chili Burritos (Ultimate Recipe Swap: Speed Cooking)

When my family is hungry, stand back. Things can get pretty crazy around here with four hungry boys, not to mention the FishPapa, wanting to eat. It helps to have a few tricks up my sleeve when it comes to meal prep. I love having meals stashed in the freezer and I love my crockpot. But, sometimes, you just need a quick fix.

One speedy recipe we enjoy around here is Chili Burritos. I was surprised at how easily my kids took to them. And they practically scarf them down. You can use canned chili in a pinch, though my personal favorite is homemade. Certainly, the canned variety makes for a quicker meal.

It’s a super simple recipe that is on the table in minutes.

Chili Burritos

large flour tortillas
your favorite chili, heated through
grated cheese
Additional toppings: sour cream, salsa, diced avocado, sauteed onions and peppers

Warm tortillas until they are soft and pliable. Spoon about 1/3 cup of chili down the center. Sprinkle with cheese. Add your choice of additional toppings. Roll up and serve. Delicious!

    I linked some muffins we call pop up muffins, essentially a german pancake baked in a muffin tin. There's no faster dinner I can think of than breakfast for the evening meal. Make some of these muffins, chop some fruit, and your favorite eggs for a meal.
