Make a batch of these pro­tein-packed bur­ri­tos on Sun­day and store them in your fridge or freezer for heat-and-eat break­fasts or lunches through­out the week. To make sure your bur­rito is heated through, insert a par­ing knife into the cen­ter and hold it there for 10 sec­onds. If the blade is hot when it comes out, the bur­rito is ready. Serve with your fa­vorite hot sauce.
