A quick and easy meal in a jar. Add some cooked rice, and a little cheese, put it all on a tortilla, and enjoy.

If you search the internet, you’ll find many horrible canning recipes for burritos in a jar. More often than not they will instruct you to can rice with the rest of the ingredients. This is a big no for safe canning.

Today I am bringing you a safe alternative for a quick and easy meal where you only need to heat some instant rice to make it complete.

    Love this recipe. I opened my first try jar today for a super quick really filling lunch. Topped with some cheese and a few crackers so full. Making my 2nd patch tonight and BF gets black beans in his (not my favorite) but with this recipe, everyone gets to have what they like and ready on the shelf. Love it.

  4. Maybe I’m missing it, how many pints does this make?

    This is a winning recipe. I made a batch in January and am now making a second batch in mid March. This time I’ll be using Rump Roast. First time I used Sirlion Tip. It just depends what I can find on sale. I followed your suggestion and have been serving the Burrito mix over Minute Rice. Once it is canned, it is a great addition to the pantry that everyone likes.

    Fold the sides in first, then fold lengthwise. Looks very good.
