i usually love making dinner. i love chopping vegetables, i love sauteeing them, i love making a mess in the kitchen. (i don’t love cleaning it up.) but i know i’m not the only one that has busy days when making dinner is just another daunting task on the to-do list, and i know i’m not the only one that sometimes just wants to have dinner already made because i simply do not feel like making it.
slow cooker meals and freezer meals are both excellent ways to get the job done without having to spend your precious time in the kitchen. it may take a little bit of work at some point, like, say, on a saturday or sunday, or even in the morning on a weekday. but it can be done when it’s convenient for you and not at 5:00 pm when everyone’s hungry.
chicken enchiladas are one of our favorite freezer meals – we make a double batch, eat half of it for dinner that night, and stick half of it in the freezer for those busy/i-do-not-feel-like-cooking days.
here is the recipe for 1 batch (it makes 8-10 enchiladas, depending on how much of the chicken filling you put in each one).Print
