I have adored Mexican food for as long as I can remember. When given the opportunity to go out to eat, I would almost always pick a Mexican Restaurant if given the opportunity. Thankfully, here in Kansas, we always have a good and usually inexpensive Mexican restaurant on hand. But…sometimes, I just want something for the whole family but don’t want to spend the money it would take to take everyone out to eat. So I make it in the slow cooker!
We always have sour cream, cheese and salsa on hand, so for us, it just works well to throw one of these in the slow cooker any time we get the urge for Mexican food. Of course, adding some awesome homemade cheese dip or homemade guacamole never hurt us any either!
When I realized just how many Mexican food recipes I have on my site, I decided you NEED to have easy access to them! So… I made you a list. Plus, I made you a printable.
The printable is an easy way to load your freezer with 6 frozen Mexican meals and it only took me 30 minutes to assemble them. It’s super easy! I’ll share more specific details about the printable at the bottom of the post.
Tools You May Need
Of course, having a slow cooker, a freezer and gallon size freezer bags are a given. But what size of slow cooker? I give a detailed response to picking out your best slow cooker on another page, but…in short, most of these are recipes large enough to call for a 6 quart or 7 quart slow cooker, similar to this:
Any time you have a recipe that calls for shredding the meat, these meat claws would come in extremely handy! So much easier than forks!!
Of course, if you don’t have someone to help you hold the bags open, you may want to consider getting a pair of these baggie holders.
25 Amazing Mexican Slow Cooker Recipes (AKA Crockpot Freezer Meals)
Yes, I’ve tried them all and love them all! Each of these recipes serves 6-8 adults.
6 Mexican Meals in Your Freezer in 30 Minutes!
You all are going to love this one. I spent about $68 at Walmart on these 6 meals. Not too bad, considering it’s enough food to feed your family for almost a week. If you have a small family, this would be plenty for 12 meals, as these meals feed 6-8 adults.
What are we eating?
- Pork Adobo x 2 (served in tortillas, on chips, over salad, in soft or hard shells or even on buns)
- Chicken Tacos x 2 (served in tortillas, on chips, over salad or in soft or hard shells)
- Mexican Corn Soup x 2
Obviously, this meal plan wouldn’t be all for one week, unless you’re totally cool with repeating meals in the same week AND eating Mexican all week long, lol. These would be to help you stock your freezer in a short amount of time. I mean, come on, it only takes 30 minutes to do this if you’re not working really slow and how nice will it be just to have a few meals in there that you can pull out when you’re feeling a bit desperate.
