  2. Heat beans in a small saucepan until warm. Set aside. 
  3. In the same skillet, heat 1 tsp oil. Sauté bell pepper and onion until soft and caramelized. Season with a bit of salt to taste. Set aside.

    8. Immediately, secure with foil and place into a freezer safe bag. 
    9. Roll the rest of the burritos and seal in freezer safe bags. Label bag with the date and use within 2 months. Make sure to keep bag airtight as much as possible to ensure quality.
