 Oh man, I love avocados. I think most of my recipes involve avocados. I had to do a little damage control after eating all of these cookies. I decided that I wanted to bake some avocados in a cheese filled burrito for lunch. The result was amazing.

The ingredients are simple in these burritos. But they are full of flavor. I loved the fresh avocados in every bite. These burritos are better for you because they are baked. And they turned out perfect. A little bit of crunch on the outside and the inside was soft and filled with flavor.

This was a quick and easy meal that my family loved! I already can’t wait to make them again and I know that you will love them too!

    1. I was able to freeze mine. I have a Food Saver Vac and Seal appliance ($47) incredibly useful and surefire solution for all your freezing needs. It comes with special plastic bags, the appliance removes air and seals the bags it prevents freezer burn and gives 3x the amount of freezer time than before etc. The best thing to do after you’ve served what you want is to briefly put the pan with the leftovers into the freezer to allow the burritos to set. Take out and divide into portions. Use the vac and seal and you can pop them back into the freezer. Allow to defrost in fridge, remove from bag and spike in the mic. I do this a lot because I live alone and like to take advantage of meat offers. It’s so useful for so many things, in fact I was so impressed I hunted for things I could freeze and the dog went into hiding..Consider it’s a great investment. I froze a pork roast for 3 weeks before using and the taste and texture was as fresh as when I bought it.
