Freezer Cooking 101 : Warm Up with Tortilla Soup in January!

The weather outside may be frightful, but inside it’s nice and toasty!  Spend one morning mixing up six gallons of Chicken Tortilla Soup, and you’ll be able to quickly warm up those bellies for the rest of the month…

Delicious Tortilla Soup.  Make ahead and warm your family up all winter long.

It’s relatively easy to whip up a loaf of bread if you already have a ready supply of filling soup in the freezer.  Make a quick loaf with a box of Jiffy cornbread.  (To make the Jiffy extra-rich, substitute Greek yogurt for the non-mix ingredients on the box recipe.)

There are many different ways to do freezer cooking.  Some families prepare six months’ worth of meals all at once.  Others double or triple each entree, and then freeze the extras.  Our family makes one to three freezer meals each week during the winter and summer.  This allows us to not be overwhelmed by an entire day’s worth of cooking, but still stocks the freezer quickly.  We make several types of soup, as they are easy to prep and even easier to reheat!

We tend to have more visitors during the winter months, and we never have to worry about finding something to serve.  With a stocked freezer, there are always entrees, side dishes, and desserts ready to be pulled out with little notice.  This gives us time to actually enjoy the company without stressing about preparations!

Each month, we will bring you new tips and benefits to freezer cooking, along with at least one seasonally-appropriate recipe.  Find more easy make-ahead meals at Gypsy Road.

There are carrots and green beans in the picture but not in the recipe. I’m a little confused.

      The green stuff you see in the featured image are chopped up bell peppers, which are not in the standard recipe. My husband loves his peppers though!
