Here’s one or our favorite ways to serve home-canned or frozen hamburger mix…beef and bean burritos. I keep tortillas in the freezer all the time, as well as cheese, and always have some home-canned or purchased beans and salsa in the pantry, so we can make this whenever I just don’t really want to cook. My husband thinks this is “fast-food”…and they are much better than those purchased burritos.
Another way to use that hamburger mix I try to always have on hand. Hamburger Mix recipe HERE
