Did you guys know about this?

This whole straight-from-freezer-to-crockpot situation?

Because I’m sitting here wondering where this has been my entire life.

It’s a game-changer, guys.

There’s no prep cooking ahead of time here.

  1. All you do is prep.
  2. Throw it in a Ziploc freezer bag.
  3. Freeze.
  4. Thaw.
  5. And dump into slow cooker.

 And you know what?

It tastes freshly made.

It doesn’t taste like I’m eating 3-day old leftovers.

So again.

I ask.

Where has this been my entire life?

And you know I made burrito bowls with this cilantro lime chicken.

Just add some brown rice.

A dollop of sour cream.

Some avo.

Or guac.

And boom.

Done.
