Meals for freezing Ideas needed!!

Recommended Posts

i am gonna have to do this in the next week or so to get us ready for baby...i am making a lasagna, soups, and a chicken enchillada...my mom is gonna come by once a week and make a big meal for us and my sisters will also drop things off so i think we are pretty covered.


here is one recipe:



12 corn tortillas, homemade or purchased


4 cups cooked, shredded chicken meat (reserve stock)

8 to 16 oz Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

1 medium onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

Green chile sauce (recipe follows)

Sour cream


1. Make green chile sauce

2. Put about 1/2" of oil in small skillet. Dip tortillas in hot oil for just a couple of seconds until softened. Place on paper towels in layers until cool enough to handle. With kitchen scissors or knife, stack 4 and cut in quarters.

LOWFAT ALTERNATIVE: Microwave tortillas in a stack in a damp paper towel or dish towel until softened, about 1 minute.


3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a large baking dish with Pam. Place one layer of tortillas in the dish which has a thin layer of sauce spread in it. Top with /3 of chicken meat and 1/3 of cheese. Spread 1/3 of sauce over it. Repeat to make 2nd and third layers. Sprinkle some cheese on top of sauce, if desired.


4. Bake for 25-35 minutes until heated through and bubbly.

i've also made them with canned soup that is a little faster...

Chicken Enchilada Casserole


4-6 cups cooked chicken, chopped or shredded

1 family size can cream of chicken soup

1 or 2 small cans of diced green chiles (undrained)

flour tortillas

4 cups grated cheese (~1 lb) - i like jack cheese

Combine chicken, soup and chiles. For a quicker finish, heat the filling. If you are assembling this the night before, no need to heat now.

In a greased 9x13, layer:


tortillas (I use small ones cut in half to cover the pan neatly and symetrically)

1/2 of chicken filling

1/2 of cheese


to make it prettier, sprinkle with paprika

Heat thoroughly, cool slightly to firm up, and serve.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
