I would image any Hispanic/Mexican speciality store would it. You need to be in an area where tortillas/burritos are very very common. Our cost I sells them in bulk- raw or cooked.

Thanks! I'll have to check the specialty ones then.

Re: Freezer cooking for a month

I love the idea of OAMC, but working it into the budget is hard. So I've started doubling or tripling our meals and then freezing the leftovers. For example, last week I made chicken tortilla soup in the crockpot. I made a triple batch, so we had enough for that night plus two nights frozen. We are having one of the frozen ones tonight for dinner. I've also tried some of the "dump" recipes, and will make a double batch (one to eat then and one to freeze for later) for those. I get most of my recipes from Pinterest.

I do the tripling thing a lot and freeze the rest too!

Two books that have helped me are "Don't Panic, Dinner's in the Freezer" 1 and 2. Great info on how to freeze it all and how long.

Some great recipes (do a quick google and you'll find the recipes online):

3-Cheese Baked Spaghetti by Tammy's recipes
Spinach Rice Casserole (without worchestershire sauce) by Tammy's recipes
Cheesey Chicken Bundles
White Chicken Chili and Regular Chili
Rio Rancho Meat (great for tacos, loaded nachos, taco salad)
Southern Ham and Beans
Pinto Beans (great frozen and then can be used for many meals)
Italian Meatloaf
Comfort Meatballs by Pioneer WOman (freezes well)
Twice Baked Potatoes
4 Corner's Refried Bean
Monterrey Jack Stuffed Chicken (great with the refried beans and Southwest Rice Bake from DPDITF books)
Chewy Granola Bars by Tammy's Recipes (I modify this recipe, bake a double batch and freeze)
Granola Energy Balls by Marathon Mom (easily changed too) and freeze
Any kind of muffins
Egg Bakes and Pioneer Woman's Quiche Recipe
