Frozen Beef and Bean Burritos in Air Fryer

Frozen burritos are a popular convenience food that first became widely available in the United States in the mid-20th century. While it’s difficult to pinpoint the exact origin of the frozen burrito, it is believed to have been created by a woman named Anita Brenner, who was looking for a way to make and sell her popular homemade burritos to a wider audience. In 1947, Brenner started selling her frozen burritos under the name “Juanita’s Foods” in southern California, and they quickly became a hit. Other companies soon followed suit, and by the 1960s and 70s, frozen burritos had become a staple in grocery stores across the United States. Today, frozen burritos are available in a variety of flavors and styles, and are enjoyed by people all over the world as a quick and easy meal option.
