Having freezer meals are so great to pull out when time is short for is dinner.  Some nights I am scrambling to get dinner on the table, so I appreciate having freezer meals available.

Such a pleasure partnering with Frigidaire Gallery® to bring you new recipes that the whole family will enjoy and saves you time in the kitchen.  I prepared a simple freezer meal with only a few ingredients that you can put together in no time.  I like to have freezer dinners on hand in case a friend is in need or when I run out of time during my busy week.  So nice to pull something out that you’ve prepared ahead of time.

To start, spoon some enchilada sauce to cover the bottom of your disposable baking dish.

Warm your tortillas so they don’t break when you roll them and place into dish.

Layer each tortilla with some shredded cheese, chicken and black beans.  Be sure to not overfill the tortillas, makes rolling and transferring to dish difficult.

Transfer rolled enchiladas seam side down into dish, keeping as tight as possible.

Using our Frigidaire Gallery 2-in-1 Freezer has been such a treat.  Love having the extra freezer storage in our garage.  What a life saver it’s been!  Love that we can easily switch from freezer to refrigerator if we choose.  I also love knowing that if we have a power outage, I don’t have to worry because my food will stay frozen for over 2 days with the ArcticLock Thick Walls.

With all of the little fingers around my house, it’s also great knowing my freezer is Smudge-Proof Stainless Steel.

Place your baking pan so the label is visible and easy to see.  Love how nice and bright the LED lights are in this freezer.  Makes it so convenient.

Loving the adjustable door bins and shelves you can organize to your liking for the different items you might have in your freezer.  When you are ready to serve the enchiladas, thaw to room temperature and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, until hot.

    Love this idea! So simple, but absolutely perfect for getting back into school and dance and sports routine in the evenings. It’s stressful having two parents work outside the home full-time, I’ll definitely be using this to ease the burden a little. Thank you! 🙂
