2-3 chicken breasts
2-3 cups refried beans
Green and Red pepper – I like sautéed better
Onions –I like sautéed better
Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese
Picante sauce to cook chicken in.
Cook meat, with taco seasoning and picante sauce in crook pot for 4-6 hours and shred final hour of cooking. Layer bottom of foil pan with tortilla shells, refried beans, chicken, onions, tomatoes, green and black pepper and cheeses. Layer again with shells, meat and cheeses. Continue layering if necessary. End with cheese on top. Cover with foil and freeze. Pull this meal out the night before you plan to eat it so that it may partially thaw.
Bake at 350 degrees with foil for about 1 hour covered. It may take longer if it is still pretty icy or less it it’s really thawed out. Then remove foil and bake until cheese melts. Serves 4 to 6.
For the kids – remove onion, green pepper and mushroom. Add ¾ cup of cheese. (my little stinkers are so picky) Layer only with beans, meat and cheese – (sometimes I use a little Velveeta cheese with my cheddar makes it extra creamy)
