Freezer Cooking Day: Official ingredient list

by Melody on October 25, 2011

What is a Freezer Cooking Day?

We are joining together for a fun group cooking day in November (my cooking day is scheduled for November 11th).  I posted a few days ago with the official Freezer Cooking Day menu plan and tips for getting yourself organized.

On to the official ingredient list.  I will do my best to highlight store deals that will match up with our ingredient list, but it’s not a bad idea to print out each recipe and the list of ingredients for yourself, so you can get yourself totally prepared.


I created a printable Google Doc with all the recipes compiled in one place, thanks to reader Catherine’s wonderful suggestion.  I hope this makes your planning a little easier!


All amounts listed are based on each recipe being doubled.  I estimated the number of chicken breasts for each recipe, so please take a look and only cook what you think you will use.  The nice thing about most of these recipes is that the chicken will stretch as it is used more as a filling instead of the focal point.

If you want a printable ingredient list to take to the store with you, I created a Google Doc here.


(16) flour tortillas
(6) cans chicken broth (14.5 oz cans)
(4) cans cream of chicken or mushroom soup
(6) cans white beans
(4) cans diced green chilies
(1) can tomato paste 5 oz
(2) cans diced or crushed tomatoes 14.5 oz
(2) packets Italian salad dressing mix
(10) cups high-gluten or bread flour
1/2 cup sliced almonds (check bulk section at Winco)
Instant yeast
Chicken bouillion
Balsamic vinegar


(2) onions
(2) carrots
Cilantro (1 bunch)
Lime (or lime juice)


(3) cups sour cream
(2) 8 oz blocks cream cheese
(4) cups shredded cheese
(1) cup Asiago, Romano or Parmesan cheese
(20) boneless skinless chicken breasts


(2) 9″x13″ aluminum pans
Saran wrap
Aluminum foil
Approximately (8) gallon Ziploc freezer bags

There are some basic pantry ingredients I didn’t include, like spices and salt and pepper, so make sure to double check each recipe before you start.  This is an approximate list, there may be items you want to swap out or exclude.  I never tend to use as much onion or cheese as each recipe calls for, so my personal list may be slightly different from yours.

Next on my list is to put together a tentative schedule to help keep us as organized as possible.
