Although the title of this post is for a Southwest Casserole Freezer Meal, in our household the dish is lovingly known as “Cassie’s Casserole”. When we lost our son, Laughton, our dear friend Cassie brought over an arm load of freezer meals. In fact, a lot of folks brought us some very tasty freezer meals. This experience is why we turn to providing freezer meals for those in need. They were extremely helpful during a really difficult time.
Cassie’s Casserole (and another dish we nicknamed “Cassie’s Tots”) have become freezer meals we continuously stock in our freezer. As soon as we use the last of this southwest casserole freezer meal, I immediately make up another huge batch to freeze.
Although we have adjusted Cassie’s original recipe a bit (we like spice and zero olives in this house), we always think of our good friends and smile with a warmed heart each time we pull one out of the freezer.
If you’ve read my post on making freezer meals for two, you know how much I favor the 2.25lb foil freezer pans. This recipe will fill NINE of those pans, however the amounts for the ingredients in the recipe are easily halved if you would like to make a smaller batch. But, trust me, you are going to want all nine of those pans in your freezer! Or extras to give to loved ones. The 2.25lb sized pans are perfect for someone who may live alone and has a hard time cooking for themselves. Think of your grandparents or a couple who just became first time parents!
