I’m so excited about this week. A group of moms that I am friends with has decided to participate in a freezer meal swap. I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with to share. For my contribution, I’m prepping a Chicken Tortilla Soup for the crockpot. I’ve made this recipe in the past, but not from a freezer bag. I just dumped all the ingredients in the crockpot fresh. I’ve included the recipe below.
Chicken Tortilla Soup (adapted from http://therealisticorganizer.blogspot.com/2014/01/organized-slow-cooker-freezer-meals.html)
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 8 oz frozen corn
- 1 can black beans, drained
- 1 cans pinto beans, drained
- 1/2 onion chopped – OPTIONAL
- taco seasoning to taste (I use homemade from this recipe)
If making from a freezer bag, allow to thaw overnight or 24 hours in the fridge.
add 1 cup water or chicken broth
add Taco Seasoning
cook low for 4-6 hours
This past weekend and very good friend took me to a local Italian grocer in Dallas called Jimmy’s Food Store. They have great fresh pasta that I just had to try. Tonight we had their Pumpkin Tortellini with Victoria’s Vodka sauce for dinner. The only word my husband and I had after dinner was YUM!!! Even my 2.5 year old had several pieces of tortellini and asked for three helpings of organic spring salad mix. I was one satisfied happy mama tonight 🙂
