Looking for easy and delicious dinner ideas?  Here are 25 easy crockpot freezer meals with five ingredients or less!  Simply combine the ingredients in baggies and freeze for busy weeknights.

25 Crockpot Freezer Meals with Five Ingredients or Less

Is there anything better than easy and delicious dinner recipes?  Probably only super simple crockpot recipes that can be frozen without any cooking ahead of time.  

I’m determined to limit all of my upcoming crockpot freezer meal eCookbooks to recipes with 10 ingredients or less, and I decided to challenge myself to put together a list of our favorite recipes with FIVE ingredients or less.  Fewer ingredients means less measuring, less chopping, and less money spent at the grocery store.

25 Crockpot Freezer Meals with Five Ingredients or Less

A lot of other websites will give you easy crockpot recipes that call for a bottle of store-bought dressing and a can of soda pop, but I’d like to think the recipes below are healthier than that.  I’m not opposed to using those ingredients on occasion, but I want this list of crockpot freezer meals to make your life easier on a regular basis.

So, here are 25 crockpot freezer meals that require five ingredients or less.  I’ve tried all of them myself and can vouch that they’re delicious too.  Enjoy!

25 Crockpot Freezer Meals with Five Ingredients or Less

  1. Salsa Verde Chicken
  2. Lime Shredded Pork
  3. Stuffed Peppers
  4. Macaroni and Cheese
  5. Shredded Beef and Carrots (our favorite!)
  6. Lasagna Soup (add meatballs to make it a heartier meal)
  7. Party Pork Roast
  8. Chicken Tacos
  9. Lemon Pepper Chicken
  10. Ginger Peach Chicken
  11. Hawaiian Chicken
  12. Basic Pot Roast (you can add carrots and potatoes if you want)

  15. Pork and Sauerkraut
  16. Banana Pepper Shredded Beef
  17. Cranberry Chicken with Green Beans
  18. Cranberry Pork Roast
  19. Mississippi Roast from Table for Two (I omit the water)

A lot of these recipes are from freezer prep sessions that I’ve done this year so I typed up exactly how I prep and freeze each meal into a printable pdf.  I also included a super detailed grocery list in case you want to prep all of them at once. 


If you’re new to crockpot freezer meals, you can also find tons of freezer recipes, tips, and nutrition info in my best-selling freezer eCookbooks.

Thoughts or questions?  Please leave a comment below and I’ll respond as soon as I can.  I’d love to hear from you. 

P.S. I shared these recipes on Thirty Handmade Days on 10/13/15.

The problem is that you’ve said most freezer meals last about 3 months. I have heard a vacuum sealer will extend that by a lot.

I am finding some info online about them, but I’m having a… Read more »

Love my foodsaver, I have used it for everything you can use it for. After I cook soups, I let it cool and then pour whatever I have made into the bag or two, and carefully hold bag so as not to spill it and seal , lay flat in freezer , and have no problem with the bag and have left in freezer for months at a time, and only use the food because we are hungry for it. Of course you can put together meals not cooked but ready for crockpot and take out to thaw before cooking,… Read more »

This looks perfect. About how much did the shopping list end up costing? There are just two of us, so these 25 meals will probably last a couple months. Cheers for light eaters!
