Freezer Meal: Vegetable Enchiladas

It’s no secret, we love Mexican food. It also happens to freeze well, just take a look at the freezer section of your local grocer, burritos and enchiladas galore.

Veggie Enchiladas - Supper for a Steal

When I was planning out what to make for our freezer meals I surveyed what I had on hand first. We always seem to have enough tortillas to throw a block party fiesta. I wanted to use them up so I planned a few different Mexican meals.  I actually had a little leftover filling from these enchiladas so I rolled it up in burrito size tortillas and made some freezer burritos. I tried the veggie one the night we got home from the hospital and while I’m pretty sure I was half asleep, it was a delicious combination.

Preston from The Hatch Chile Store had sent me some roasted hatch chiles back in June and they sat in my freezer for a while when I took a little cooking break. Finally I broke into them when making up these enchiladas. They added the perfect amount of heat to this dish. I suggest ordering yourself some of these to keep in your freezer then just pop one or two out to throw in a dish.

    Yay! When I was a kid, my mom used to make burritos and put them in the freezer. I would put one in my lunch and it would be nice and warm by lunch time. Always amazed me. I can’t wait to try these.
