When I said last week that we were starting to prepare for back to school already, I was half joking and half serious. Until yesterday when the teens schedules came in the mail! Wait… what? Summer is just about over! Less than a month and my house will be quiet and peaceful… I mean lonely again. On a serious note, having two teens in high school, I need to make sure they have a nice hearty, filling breakfast before they start their day. Sometimes that can be a bit challenging around here since we both work full time also. Make ahead meals, and blender drinks are perfect for those busy school mornings.  Kicked up Freezer Breakfast Burritos and a Tropical Orange and Pineapple Smoothie will make every morning complete.

Smoothies and breakfast burritos are pretty common dishes around here on a regular basis, and a big hit with the teens. This week I wanted to switch things up a little and kick it up a notch. I headed over to Walmart for some ideas. How can I kick up breakfast burritos and boring smoothies? Picante sauce! Yep, that’s right, Pace Picante Sauce. Guaranteed to add a kick to your cooking and snacking for sure. For the smoothies, I wanted to add some new flavors and possibly some vitamins and minerals. Getting the teens to eat their veggies is getting easier, but sometimes still a challenge. V8 + Energy has fantastic flavor combinations, a full serving of fruits and vegetables, and it tastes like fruit.

To Assemble:

  • Set up an assembly line of your ingredients before you start to put the breakfast burritos together. This will make the process go so much faster.
  • Fill your tortilla with cheese, egg, Pace Picante Sauce, and any breakfast topping you love.
  • Bring up the two sides together so they touch, and begin to roll the tortilla as shown in the photo. Wrap tightly with a foil sheet.
  • Be sure to label what is inside each bundle with a sharpie if they are different.
  • Place in a large ziplock bag until ready to serve.

To Heat:

  • Remove from the foil wrap, and microwave for 1 to 2 minutes if thawed, and 3 to 5 minutes if frozen. Or until heated through.
  • Oven heated: Bake in 350-degree oven for 10 – 15 minutes until completely heated through.
  • These burritos are completely cooked, so all you are doing is warming them up.
  • Serve with sour cream, guacamole, and extra Pace Picante Sauce on top!
