Freezer Meals: Chicken Quesadillas

Busy days are made easier when you've got a stocked freezer of meals that have been precooked and prepped. One of my family's favorite meals is freezer chicken quesadillas. I found the recipe online about 12 years ago and so I no longer have the original link plus I've modified the recipe for my family's tastes. The recipe makes four packages so you can eat one tonight and have three meals ready in your freezer.

6 cups cooked and chopped chicken (I use one of the store rotisserie chickens and get about 6 cups from it)
1 cup sour cream
4 cups Old El Paso Thick and Chunky Salsa (one 32 oz jar does the trick)
4 cups Mexian shredded cheese
1 tablespoon chili powder (more or less to taste)
1 6oz jar chopped jalapenos (leave out if you don't like spicy food)
4 packages of 8-10 count tortillas (at least taco size but larger works just as well)
8 one gallon freezer ziploc bags

Combine the chicken, sour cream, cheese, jalapenos, and chili powder in a bowl and mix well. Divide chicken mixture evenly between four one gallon ziploc bags, release air, close and flatten. Place chicken mixture bag and one torilla bag into a second freezer bag and store in freezer for upto three months.

Remove night before to thaw for dinner. Once thawed, spread even amounts of chicken mixture on half a tortilla, fold over, and cook over medium heat in pan on stovetop. Serve with extra sour cream and salsa. ENJOY! moderska
