Kitchen Sink Veggie Burritos


This recipe stems from two places:

My two oldest children have fall birthdays. So when I was pregnant and nesting I made a bunch of casseroles and chilies and hearty easy to freeze foods. But when I was expecting my third baby in the summer I had no idea what to “put up” to prepare for the craziness of her arrival. I ended up grilling lots of chicken breast and freezing them. As well as cleaning out the fridge of all the random veggies and making these burritos.

I also find my self (and think many busy moms do the same) at about 5:00pm having no idea what to make for dinner. This is a great use what you have recipe.

It is hard to gauge the quantities to use in this recipe. It depends on what you have and the how much of it. And if you want to just have it for one meal or have some left over to freeze or eat later.
