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.
