Instead of doling out money for already cooked foods at the grocery store, making them at home can save you tons.   Of course, there are times to splurge and times when coupons will get you stocked up super cheap.   But, for all those other times, look online for recipes to see if it’s something you can make yourself and maybe something you can freeze for an easy snack or meal later!

  • 1 Large Can White Chicken
  • 10 Flour Tortillas

  • Freezer Cooking – Cool, then flash freeze on a cookie sheet.   When frozen, place in a freezer bag for long term storage.   Pull out and heat in the oven at 400 to serve.
  • Swap It – Use 1 pound of ground beef instead of chicken for a new taste.   Or use canned turkey.
  • Encore Meal Idea – This is a wonderful encore meal idea to use leftover chicken, turkey, or beef!
