Mexican Pizza – Freezer Meal

Continuing to share some of my favorite slow cooker meals for the freezer. Read more about freezer slow cooking here.

Mexican Pizzas

This is an easy and very inexpensive meal that is flexible to please every  member of your family.

002Ingredients

2 pounds of cooked ground meat(beef, turkey, whatever you prefer)

1 can of chili beans

1 can of Rotel Original

Flour Tortillas – taco size

Toppings ideas – cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, jalapeno, sour cream.

Instructions

Mix cooked ground meat, chili beans, and Rotel in a freezer bag.

When ready to eat, thaw in refrigerator the night before. You can skip this step if you like, it will just take a little longer to heat. Empty the contents of the bag into your slow cooker and cook on low for 4-6 hours, until heated through.

When you are ready to serve, make your tortillas. Heat a little oil in a frying pan on medium. Cook each tortilla until crispy, they may bubble up a bit, just poke a hole in the bubble and keep going. Lightly brown both sides of the tortilla. Place tortilla on a plate, add your meat mixture from the crock pot, then add your toppings just like a pizza. I like to cut them into slices as it makes them easier to handle.

You could also serve this taco style in a soft or hard shell, on top of chips for a yummy pile of nachos, or on a bed of lettuce for a taco-style salad.

If your family likes Mexican food like mine, I recommend making several batches of this mixture at one time and freeze in separate freezer bags.

This meal gets 4/5 stars from my family, only because my youngest thinks it is a bit too spicy. You could always replace the Rotel with diced tomatoes to take some of the spice away.
