I was able to get 8 small/medium sized burritos. To fold, simply fold each end slightly and roll lengthwise.
How To Store & Freeze Burritos
For storing, I used paper sandwich bags, the burritos fit nestled perfectly and I was able to fold over the top and roll it around. You can also wrap them in tin foil or stack them in plastic freezer bags. Store them in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, or keep them in the freezer for 1 – 2 months.
How To Reheat Burritos
To reheat, place in 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes in foil OR remove foil and heat on HIGH in microwave for about 1 minute.
