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.

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.
