BBQ Pork Quinoa Sweet Potato Burritos
Crowd pleasing, healthy, and easy. These burritos are perfect for making ahead and freezing for busy nights. I love burritos, and I especially love burritos that I can freeze and use on busy days. These fit the bill, and make my tastebuds sing. Win-win-win in my book. I promise you will love these if you like BBQ pork, and a savory, tasty, filling, hearty burrito. These are not as easy as some of my meals, but in reality they take a little prep, but not too much work, and are a crowd-pleaser.
Because I usually make this recipe while doing a freezer meal cook, I cook up a big batch of quinoa, a crock pot full of sweet and spicy pulled pork, and I roast a large pan full of sweet potatoes and jalapeños (trust me the flavors blend amazingly), grab my cheese, salsa, and black beans, then I do a huge assembly line style batch. I just open a few cans of black beans, but you could cook them from dry in your crock pot if you want. I assemble, roll in foil, and freeze. Then the day I want to eat it I cook it in my oven on 350 for about 20 minutes. Perfection!
These are also great with my favorite garnish, avocado! Or you can add some sour cream, extra salsa, or whatever you enjoy most on a big fat burrito!
