If the burritos are wrapped and in a freezer bag, they should keep fresh in the freezer for up to 3 months.

What sauce should I dip my burrito in?

Although these burritos are so packed with flavor they don’t really *need* a sauce, we personally like to eat salsa with ours! Hot sauce also adds a nice kick. Another alternatives could be buffalo sauce or ketchup. Anything that sounds good to you would work!
