Do you love your enchiladas? Have you ever wanted to make them ahead of time or freeze them so that they are ready when you want one? Well, if this is the case then read on! This article will explain everything there is to know about freezing enchiladas. We’ll tell you how to freeze and store them as well as how to reheat them afterward.
So, can you freeze enchiladas?
Yes, you can.
But there is a correct way to do it and if not done properly food could go bad or be ruined. So, for starters, we’ll tell you how to freeze enchiladas correctly so that they last as long as possible in the freezer before being reheated. The best thing about this method is that when you fry them up again from their frozen state they’re going to taste just like fresh!
How to freeze enchiladas?
Let’s start with the packaging. You’ll need to wrap your enchiladas up in plastic wrapping and then place them into a zip-top bag or foil pan.
Next, you should put it all in a freezer-safe container that has been sealed shut so that no air can get inside and cause any type of bacteria growth (this is really important).
You should always label each container with what they’re containing as well as their date frozen on it before putting them away for good! If deciding to store more than one day’s worth of food at once don’t forget to use large containers if there will be leftovers; this way you won’t have every single meal take over your entire fridge space when reheating later on!
Can you freeze enchiladas with cheese?
The good news is that it’s possible to freeze any type of food including ones with cheese! But, the bad news is that they won’t stay fresh for as long in comparison. Why’s this? Well, because frozen foods will dry out and have a slightly different texture or makeup than when first made. This includes all types of ingredients like sauces which can change color from freezing too!
But if you want them moister then we recommend following these steps: After preparing your enchilada dish wait until it has cooled down completely before wrapping up each one separately before putting it into the freezer container (you should be able to fit about six per batch). Before sealing shut add glass noodles on top of the enchiladas to help them stay moist and then cover with a lid.
How long can you freeze an enchilada?
Freezing food for about three months is usually safe but it also depends on how the freezer operates if there are fluctuations in temperature or not (if they’re really cold).
How to reheat frozen enchiladas?
Before reheating them you’ll want to take the frozen enchiladas out of their container and wrap them up in a paper towel. This will help soak off any excess moisture so that they don’t drip as much when heated on the stovetop. You’ll then want to heat up a little bit of oil in a pan and fry them on each side until golden brown before serving.
