There’s nothing better than having an amazing meal from scratch, and getting a two-for-one when you take the time to prepare making a fresh meal now, and one that will freeze well to enjoy later. I’m going to share one of my favorite meals and best freezer meals I’ve tried. This is deceitful, because it’s not just two meals, I typically get 2-3 dinner out of each crockpot batch, so I should title this “2-3 Meals Now, 2-3 Meals Later” to be more accurate. I put this on the meal plan for early in the week and plan two additional meals with the meat, it goes that far!
If you haven’t heard of Cafe Rio of have one in your area I’m going to give you a sad digital hug and offer condolences. It’s really great Tex-Mex style food with so many delicious pieces! We love burritos, salads, tacos, and pretty much everything they serve, but love their sweet pork barbacoa best. It’s easy to make, but it takes a little time and prep in advance. We’ve found a few shortcuts to make this super easy and excellent when frozen!
