Notes

FREEZER MEAL DIRECTIONS

  • After AMAZING Enchilada Casseroles are assemebled you can freeze the extras for later! 
  • Wrap each 9×13 pan with a double layer of foil. Label the foil with name and date (plus baking directions if you’d like). Followed by a double layer of plastic wrap.
  • Place the Enchilada Casseroles in the freezer for 3 to 6 months!
  • When you’d like to use this easy freezer meal just pull it from your freezer stash the night before and place it in your refrigerator to defrost. At cooking time remove the plastic wrap and foil. Reuse one sheet of foil to lightly tent over your casserole. Place in a preheated oven at 375 for 35 to 40 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the edges bubble.
  • NOTE: your baking time may need to be increased in 15 minute increments until desired doneness is reached based on the defrosted level of your cassorole. Always make sure food researched on internal temperature of at least 165. A cheap digital thermometer helps with this!
