My husband awarded this Burrito Pie Freezer Meal Recipe as being one of his very favorite all-time freezer meals. I made three large deep dish 19 x11 pans during my recent freezer meals for dayzzzz big batch cooking times.
I said with my deep dish Macaroni and Cheese Freezer Meal that that meal would end up being two to three meals for our family (large family leftovers isn’t always a thing 🙂 ). However, this deep dish Burrito Pie Freezer Meal Recipe was more like ONE hearty meal with just a bit of leftover for a few folks for the following day’s lunch. I will say though I usually serve extra side dishes to stretch our meals such as salad, applesauce, or other fruits and veggies. The three times over about 6 weeks when we had this Burrito Pie Freezer Meal it pretty much WAS the entire meal. Stretch it as you’d like!
If you enjoy this large family recipe you might also enjoy this Chicken Enchilada Freezer Meal Recipe and another big family favorite, my large family Taco Bake Freezer Meal Recipe! I made several pans of both last summer for my postpartum freezer meals. It was a blessing to have a filled freezer and to not have to think about food during that sweet new baby time.
Burrito Pie Freezer Meal Recipe | Freezer Meals for Large Families!
Enjoy this wonderful Burrito Pie Freezer Meal with your large family! One 19 x 11 pan feeds our family of ten once with a few leftovers. It’s a family favorite.
- Five bags of 10 tortillas (50 tortillas total)
- 10 lbs of cooked ground beef
- 2-3 diced green peppers
- 1 diced onion
- 1 cup of taco seasoning (yes, this is for all of that meat! I buy taco seasoning in bulk or you can make homemade)
- Four 16-oz cans of refried beans
- Four 7-oz cans of green chilies
- 12 cups of shredded provolone cheese
- Four 16-oz packs of sliced pepper jack cheese (each pack has 24 slices)
To Make Burrito Pie Meat Mixture
- Cook 10 lbs of ground beef along with 2-3 diced green pepper, onion, and 1 cup of taco seasoning. I cook my ground beef in a variety of ways (slow cooker, pressure cooker, roaster oven, conventional oven, or two big pans on the stove).
- Once ground beef is fully cooked, crumbled, and drained add in and mix thoroughly four 16-oz cans of refried beans.
To Assemble The Burrito Pie Freezer Meals
- Layer the bottom of each deep dish pan with 6 flat tortillas
- Add a layer of meat mixture on top of tortillas
- On top of meat mixture spread out approximately 15 slices of pepper jack cheese
- Top cheese slices with about 1/2 of one 7-oz can of green chilies
- Start next layer with 6 flat tortillas
- Repeat steps above
- End with 6 tortillas topped off with 4 cups of shredded cheese. Use your favorite shredded cheese. In this recipe, I used shredded provolone.
- To eat right away place pan in preheated oven at 375 with a tented foil lid for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes remove foil lid and allow Burrito Pie to cook an additional 15 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
