This vegetable and beef chili recipe came from the Beyond Diet 7 Day Rescue plan and is one of my favorites. I can have this ready in 15 minutes and I usually have all the ingredients on hand. And of course, I make a lot every time and fill the freezer and have a quick go-to lunch idea. For lunch, I add some rice in. For dinner, I just eat it plain or use it as my pizza sauce on homemade pizzas. As a snack, I put it on top of tortilla chips with some cheese. Can I just say these are amazing nachos without a lot of the added effort and one of our faves! [Read more…]
This zesty beef meatloaf recipe is one of my favorites. The best part about it is that touch of spicy that most meatloaf recipes don’t have. AND the added nutrients from the vegetables is a bonus. When we make this meatloaf we make a bunch of them and throw them in the freezer for a quick and easy meal. During these times, being able to plan ahead matters.

This slow cooker chicken sausage recipe is extremely healthy because it uses chicken sausage and peppers and onions. Very few ingredients but it produces a wonderful combination of flavors in your mouth. Bill said we definitely keep this one on the Crockpot Freezer Meal Series!
Bill and I had ours completely different and we both loved it! He had his on a sub roll with ketchup, mustard, relish (he’s the condiment king). I had mine with mustard and green tobasco to make it a little spicy.
Do you prefer sweet or spicy?
Make sure to check out our other crockpot freezer meals from our Crockpot Freezer Meal Series.
These Crockpot Beef Tips & Gravy are part of our Crockpot Freezer Meal Series and they are delicious! I will say they had more of a beef stew consistency from cooking all day but I wouldn’t change them. The beefy broth was scrumptious to the point we wanted to drink it! LOL, maybe not that drastic but it was very good.
One alteration I made is adding pepper and onion at the end. This step was not in the original beef tip recipe. I’m glad I thought to do it though as it added to the taste and texture.
Do you like# burritos? You will love this #recipe and how much time it saves you! Beef and cheddar burritos made ahead and put in the freezer are the way to go! I made these when I made the other meals in the Crockpot Freezer Series and we had them for the first time last night. They are not a crockpot meal but they do go in the freezer. The trick is wrapping them in both the paper towel and aluminum. They were delicious and fresh!
This stuffed pepper recipe for the #crockpot is different than the one I normally make. I like that you use cauliflower in place of rice. And I really like you can make a bunch of them for freezer meals and pop in the crockpot! You don’t even have to defrost them first!

When Bill went to Ireland, he knew I was making the crockpot freezer menu. I asked him which meal he wanted me to take out and cook for his return. Utlimate Beef Stroganoff Crockpot is the one he picked. Great choice Bill! I love that man. He knows I’m not a fan of mushrooms so he told me to make it without. Yeeha!
