Re: Favorite freezer meals
I do a lot of slow cooker freezer meals. They require little effort day of, and most of them I can even cook from frozen. Here are the meat free ones I have tried or plan on trying. Some of these are not written for the freezer, so I will note any modifications you need to freeze them.
Quiona Chili http://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2013/...noa-chili.html
In labeled gallon size freezer bag put everything except chicken stock and quiona. When you go to cook it, add 2 c vegetable broth (or chicken broth if you are just meat free not vegetarian) and the 1 c rinsed quiona. Cook the same as directions.

Also uses a gallon size freezer bag. Add everything except chicken broth. (I usually don't add black pepper because it will come out stronger tasting when frozen and cooked.) Then when you cook it, dump in frozen add your broth. Cook until you add cream cheese. We don't like ours as thick so we use a can of evap. milk instead of cream cheese.
Santa Fe chicken This one I made with meat, and I plan on making again without meat. http://www.chef-in-training.com/2011...ta-fe-chicken/
Don't add chicken. Double the beans and corn. I used green onions instead of scallions because they are easier to find. Then you can serve with rice like a burrito bowl or in burritos
