What You Will Need to Make the Slow Cooker Freezer-Friendly Tamale Casserole

Prepare the Tamale Casserole using the following ingredients:

  • Ground Beef. Use three pounds of lean ground beef. Here are more ground beef recipes to try!
  • Onions. Dice your onions into small pieces.
  • Green Bell Peppers. Cut your bell peppers into pieces and remove the seeds before using them.
  • Taco Seasoning. This makes the meal. I have lots of taco-style meals!

The only other ingredients needed are tomato sauce and corn muffin mix.

Can I Use Ground Turkey?

You can use ground turkey as an alternative for the ground beef in this recipe. If you do not want to use ground beef, ground chicken is another alternative that works in this recipe. Feel free to use a combo of both ground turkey and ground beef if you would like to make this casserole a bit leaner.

Can I Use Other Bell Peppers?

The Slow Cooker Freezer-Friendly Tamale Casserole includes green peppers that you would need to dice into pieces. If you would rather use red, yellow, or orange bell peppers, it is fine to do so. The lighter bell peppers have a slightly sweeter taste, but they will still taste good with the seasoned meat, cheese, and other ingredients.

Can I Freeze It?

Yes! you can freeze the casserole before preparing it to feed your large family. The best way to do this is to prepare the ground beef with onion and green peppers.

Once you have cooked these ingredients, allow them to cool, and then add them to a freezer bag with the rest of your ingredients, except for the corn muffin mix.

You can place the freezer bag full of ingredients into your freezer and leave it there for a maximum of three months. Be sure to thaw the ingredients for your Large Family Slow Cooker Freezer-Friendly Tamale Casserole overnight in the fridge before you add them to your slow cooker. Then follow the directions below to make the meal. Then add it to your large family menu!
