Remember this post when I put together tons of CrockPot Freezer meals all in one day? Well, this week, our family pulled out and enjoyed one of them, so I thought I'd share.
This recipe really was great! It had enough spice to make it more flavorful than the store-bought canned version but wasn't too spicy for the kids to enjoy.
Combine all the following ingredients in a ziplock baggie (or CrockPot, if you're serving it today):
1 chopped onion
1 (16 oz.) can chili beans
1 (16 oz) can black beans (or prepared dry beans)
1 (15 oz.) can corn, drained (or frozen equivalent)
1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 (12 oz.) can or bottle beer (or broth)
2 (10 oz.) cans diced tomatoes with green chilies (undrained)
1 package taco seasoning
3 whole skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cubed
As you can probably tell by the ingredient photo, I doubled the recipe to freeze in two separate bags.
For dinner, thaw and cook in CrockPot on low for 6-8 hours. Serve topped with shredded Cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips.
I love being able to serve a yummy dinner that took me only 5 minutes to get to the table!
Putting together those 12 meals all in one day was an ordeal. It required time, effort, and planning. But, those initial investments will pay off in saved time, effort, and planning every time we eat one!
