2 cups mild salsa verde
1 cup regular salsa
pepper jack cheese, shredded
1 can black beans, drained
cilantro, chopped

Put the frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot (on high) and pour over the salsa verde. You don't need a ton. After a few hours, when the meat is cooked through, shred the chicken in the crock pot then let it absorb the rest of the salsa (about 30 min to an hour more). Then cook the tortillas in a pan. Fill the tortilla with some shredded chicken, black beans, a large spoonful of regular salsa, cilantro and pepper jack cheese. Roll up and wrap each burrito in tin foil. Freeze!

Then when you are ready to eat one, put it in the microwave for about a min (until completely thawed). Then brown it in a pan (if you are home) for a few more min. We eat these for lunch all the time. Yum!
Don't see the link, but thanks for the recipe, sounds yummy!

Re: Freezer cooking for a month

also, I cook 10# potatoes, make mashed potatoes, and freeze them in 1 meal size portions. Almost all soups freeze great, I do a lot of prep ingredient freezing so I can make a 'fresh' meal fast.
I've also cooked sweet potatoes, added an egg or two (to make them hold togather, you could do butter and brown sugar too), and put cookie scoop sizes in a muffin tin, stuffed a marshmallow in the middle, and froze them. Choose your portion size- small cookie scoop, mini muffin pan, mini marshmallow, or large scoop, regular muffin pan, large marshmallow.
Frozen pizzas, meatballs, ham slices/diced ham, cooked rice, pot pies (mini or regular), cookie dough, look in your local grocery store freezer section for inspiration, and use your favorite recipes!

Is there a difference between "raw tortillas" and regular flour/corn ones you see bagged in the store?

Yes. They are raw and require cooking and do go back quickly.

I've never seen/heard of them before. Are they basically rolled out dough? What stores sell it?

Lol. I don't think I've seen it at Costco or Fred Meyer, at least not in AK or WA. Maybe it would be at a specialty store? Anyone know if any of the chains have it?
