Our last day of Dinner in this 4 Weeks to Fill Your Freezer challenge was a pretty big hit!

I don’t make enchiladas very often, I don’t know why. But these Red Chicken Enchiladas were pretty good. Then again, we’re huge fans of Mexican food.

To start, I cooked some frozen chicken in the slow cooker. Each batch (I doubled it) uses a pound of chicken, and the piece I had was about 1.5 pounds… close enough!

Once the chicken finished, I shredded it in my KitchenAid mixer and added half the enchilada sauce, all the cheese, the beans, and the green chiles.

Next is just filling and rolling the tortillas! I’m a nerd and use a simple food scale to measure out exactly how much mixture to put in; but I’d say about a 1/3 cup will do.

I doubled the recipe, so I used two 9×13 pans to fit all 16 enchiladas. Once they were all rolled, I poured the rest of the enchilada sauce on top and baked the one we were going to eat that night. The other one was covered in aluminum foil and put in the freezer.

We served our enchiladas with some frozen corn and it made a good meal! Spanish rice would be a nice option, too. You can also top your enchiladas with sour cream, salsa, guacamole, or other favorite toppings. We were pretty simple.

Overall, I’m pretty happy with how all my freezer dinners turned out! Most of them were put in the freezer instead of being eaten that night, so we have a large amount to eat next month. If you missed any recipes, scroll down to find the entire list so far!
