Easy freezer meal for Chicken Enchilada Soup that you will want to make over and over!

Freezer meals are the best for busy schedules. We make this recipe often or Freezer Lipton Onion Meatloaf.

Full slow cooker of enchilada soup with a ladle scooping it up.

All that is needed to get this meal on the table after it cooks is a little cheese and tortilla chips. How easy would that be after work?!

Chicken broth, onion, cream of chicken soup, enchilada sauce, corn, cilantro and jalapeno.

This recipe can be thrown directly into the slow cooker or put into a ziplock bag and put into the freezer for a meal later in the month.

Freezer Meal Preparations: (this recipe makes 1 freezer bag):

  • Write the name of the meal, date and cooking time on the very bottom edge of the a gallon size Ziplock bag. Place the ziplock bag into a tall large container, fold down the lip of the bag so the zip part won’t get food all over it. Add the ingredients into to the bag in the order shown.
