Master Mix: Mexican Chicken Master Mix



This Mexican Chicken Master Mix is freezer to table for so many dishes! It will be your go to short cut for quick Mexican Meals in just minutes! From Nachos, Tacos, Enchiladas, to soups, Burrito Bowls, Casseroles and more! The possibilities are endless!

Whether you're celebrating Cinco de Mayo or looking for a great all around Mexican Chicken Mix that will feed a crowd or store in your freezer to grab for meals in minutes, this recipe is it!

I'm always on the look out for new freezer meals and master mixes that can make life easier. I have fallen in love with this one! I love the versatility and taste! I always keep a batch in my freezer to grab, heat and eat!  Need a quick idea to get started?   See my bonus easy peazy  casserole  recipe included at the end!

Freezer Meals: It makes approximately enough for 3 freezer meals depending on your family size and recipe. Just store in your favorite storage bags or containers for up to 3 months.

Flexible Recipe: Play around with the add ins! Feel free to add in or replace items such as: 2-4 cups cooked rice, mix two kinds of beans such as pintos and black beans  if you like, etc.

Shredded Chicken: I usually use a store bought Rotisserie Chicken and debone it and shred the chicken. An average rotisserie chicken will provide about 2 lb.s or 3 cups of shredded meat, about 2 cups of white meat and 1 cups of dark meat. You can cook down your own chicken in a stock pot or crockpot and shred it up, just equal about 2 lb's or 3 cups when done.
