Enchilada Sauce 20 oz. 40 oz. 60 oz. 80 oz. 100 oz. 120 oz.

Assembly Directions:
This meal is assembled as a kit. For each meal, place ground beef, black beans, and salsa in a quart freezer bag. Place cheddar cheese in a sandwich bag. Place the flour tortillas in a gallon freezer bag. Add the bags with the meat mixture and the cheese to the gallon freezer bag. The Enchilada Sauce can be stored in a freezer container or in a separate quart freezer bag if you are making it from scratch.

Freezing Directions:
Remove excess air from bags. Seal, label and freeze.

Serving Directions:
Completely thaw kit in the refrigerator. Spray slow cooker with cooking spray. Place 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce in the bottom of the slow cooker. Next, build 5 layers for the enchiladas. Build each layer in this order:

1/2 cup meat mixture
1/4 cup cheese
1/3 cup enchilada sauce

Place the remaining tortilla on top. Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Place lid on slow cooker and cook on low for 5 hours or on high for 2 to 3 hours. When done, cut into wedges and serve.

In my experience cooking this dish, it cooks better on low than on high.
We usually serve this with a salad.
You can substitute cooked, chopped chicken for the ground beef. Use 2-1/2 cups per recipe.
