Sour Cream Enchiladas Freezer Meal Directions

Turn this delicious meal into a freezer meal that you can stockpile and use whenever you need a comfort meal. By doubling the recipe, you don’t double the workload, and can make 4 smaller pans of enchiladas that you can use any other time.

I’ve found that disposable foil pans are perfect for storing freezer meals. I always stock up on disposable foil pans so I am ready whenever I cook.

Sour Cream Enchiladas 1

I have a family of 6 and like the 8×8 pans for freezer meals. My 4 kids are still young so they don’t eat a whole lot yet and an 8×8 still leaves a serving left over for the next day.

Sour Cream Enchiladas 6

Same recipe, just doubled or even tripled if you really like enchiladas. Put a little sauce on the bottom of the pan, roll your tortillas and meat mixture with cheese, completely covering the tortillas.

To prepare it for the freezer, wrap it in saran wrap and then cover in foil. I always write Enchiladas on the foil and the date that I made them so that it doesn’t get lost in my freezer for years.

  1. I love enchiladas ,it is one of my favorite Mexican food , I will try this recipe because it looks verrryyy yumi !!!!

  2. You actually had me at the words sour cream!! These sound delicious. I havent tried this version and am going to give it a goo soon. I would try beef or even venison, but I bet any meat would work even ham. These would make an awesome freezer meal too.

  3. I have been making these for a long time and they really are the best! The only difference is I use corn tortillas and have never tried making enchiladas with flour tortillas. It doesn’t make them soggy? Def a family fav and even birthday meal requests for this one.

  4. I was just thinking about Chicken Enchiladas today and then found this recipe. This looks so yummy that I am going to have to try it this week. Thank you for sharing!
