25 Crockpot Freezer Meals with Five Ingredients or Less

Crockpot freezer meals are a busy mom’s best friend.  With three young children (and a fourth on the way), I get really excited when I come up with new recipes that are delicious, healthy, and don’t require a lot of ingredients.  Fewer ingredients means less measuring, less chopping, and less money spent at the grocery store. 

A win-win-win.

All of the recipes in my upcoming crockpot freezer meal eCookbooks will have 10 ingredients or less, and I decided to put together a list of recipes with FIVE ingredients or less.  These are all recipes that my family has tried and loved.

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!

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. 


I like to serve my easy freezer meals with simple side dishes like steamed broccoli or a salad and rice.  (I even use those microwaveable rice packs on occasion when I’m short on time.  Shhhhh.)

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

    Hi, these all look delicious! I wanted to try the Hot Pepper Sirloin with Butternut Squash but it links to stuffed peppers. :(

      I am so sorry about that, Nancy. I’m not sure how it happened, but I messed up a couple of the links. I went through all of them and made sure they are correct now. I apologize for the inconvenience!

    #20 Pepperoncini shredded beef recipe takes me to stuffed peppers. ? Was hoping for something new since I normally use these peppers with salads, meat/cheese plates and when making “firecrackers”. Thanks!!!

    I want to AT LEAST TRY one of your recipes before buying an e-book please share lime shredded pork and then if we like it well gladly buy your e-books

    I hope most of these don’t involve cooking the meat first…the point is to save time!! But I can’t wait to look, and I won’t hold it against you if they do. Because I don’t know you, and I’m not a troll. ;)

      I have taken a look, and I am in love with you!! I stayed at home for 11 years, and have just recently had to start working. I have *always* cooked from scratch, but there is no energy left at the end of the day (when its time to make dinner!). Thank you for *even* making the grocery list. Dinner is where my guilt and nostalgia hurts the most, and this really helps!

  5. says

    These all look fantastic and I am anxious to try many of them! One note, your Chicken Teriyaki #21 link takes me to your stuffed pepper recipe. Would love to see your Chicken recipe. Thanks for putting these all together!

      Whoops! Sorry about that, Vickie. It was one of the meals that I made from Whole Foods and we loved it. I just updated the link.
