1 can cream of chicken soup
4 oz. chopped green chilies

1 pkg. small soft tortillas (10ct.) or large soft tortillas (8ct.) I use whole wheat.

Mix soup, green chilies, chicken and 1 cup cheese in bowl. Divide mixture evenly between tortillas. Spread mixture on each tortilla. Roll up tortillas. Place roll ups in a gallon-size Ziploc freezer bag. Place 1 cup cheese in pint-size Ziploc freezer bag.

Cheese Sausage Strata by Erica

1 1/2 pounds of bulk pork sausage
9 eggs lightly beaten
3 cups of milk
9 slices of bread, cubed
1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 pound of sliced bacon, crumbled
1 1/2 teaspoon of ground mustard

In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink, drain.
Add the eggs, milk, bread, cheese bacon and mustard. Transfer to a greased shallow 3 qt. baking dish. Cover and freeze.

Serving Day:
Allow to thaw, Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 60-65 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

(for making five meals at a time, I cooked sausage in my largest pot and mixed only eggs, milk and mustard together in a very large bowl. I put the rest of the ingredients in the greased pan and poured the egg mixture over it and mixed in the pan.)
