Here are a list of freezer meals I’ve made over the years, as well as freezer meals from friends. For a list of helps for Once A Month Cooking (OAMC) or cooking for the freezer, see my blog post called Stocking The Freezer.
BEEF SKILLET ENCHILADAS
1# ground beef
1/2 c chopped onion
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can enchilada sauce (or picante sauce – 2 T)
1/3 c milk
2 T green chilies
8-12 corn tortillas
2 1/2 c (10 oz) shredded cheese
1/2 c chopped pitted olives (opt)
-Cook beef and onion, drain. Stir in soup, enchilada sauce, milk and chilies. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 20 min. Stir occassionally. (if you are going to cook and eat these NOW, keep in skillet and follow the rest of the recipe, cover and heat on stove for 5 minutes instead of baking in oven) To freeze: Move to 9X13 pan.
-In small skillet dip tortillas in hot oil until limp (~5 seconds/side), drain on paper toweling. Reserve 1/2 c cheese, place ~ 1/4 c cheese on each tortilla, sprinkle with olives and roll up. Place in meat mixture.
-Freeze in 2 gallon ziploc bag.
(thaw) Remove from bag, cover with foil and heat through in 350 oven for 25 min. Sprinkle with remaining cheese, cover and heat until cheese on top melts, ~1-2 min. Serves 4-6
