We have found that prepping freezer meals saves us so much money! Instead of ordering takeout or heading out for dinner when we didn’t have time to prep, we simply grab one of these and voila! A delicious dinner without spending any extra money!
These chicken fajitas our are favorite freezer meal. I can prep a bag in less than 10 minutes and they taste just as good as our neighborhood Mexican restaurant!
I use these Ziploc bag stands to hold my bag open while I make freezer meals. You can definitely do it without, but if you are prepping a bunch at once it really makes things easy.
When your ready to make it, you can simply dump the contents of the Ziploc bag into your crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for about 4 hours.
After cooked through, use a fork to shred the chicken. I let it sit in the juices about 10-15 minutes after shredding, for optimum flavor and juiciness.
Even with buying organic ingredients, this meal cost me $15. That’s only $2.50 per serving!
