These are wonderful to have on hand to add to soups, roasts, veggie dishes--anything you want to add a little flavor to. When completely frozen, pop 2 to 3 pods into a snack-sized resealable plastic bag, label, date, and return to the freezer. Do this until all are bagged. Thaw and stir a pod into the eggs to get veggies into you kids! Drop frozen ones into the pot to thaw as the meat cooks.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Chop green bell pepper, red bell pepper, onion, celery, carrots, jalapeno pepper, and garlic, each separately, in a food processor; combine in a large bowl. Chop tomato in the food processor, drain extra liquid, and transfer chopped tomato to vegetable mixture.

  • Mix seasoned salt and black pepper into vegetable mixture until evenly coated.

  • Spray ice cube trays or miniature muffin cups with cooking spray; fill each section with vegetable mixture using an ice cream scoop or large spoon.

  • Place trays in the freezer until vegetable mixtures are completely frozen, at least 3 hours.

Cook's Notes:

Number of pods will depend on the size of your ice cube trays or mini muffin tins. Takes a couple hours to freeze, but can be used immediately in a dish you are preparing.

Red, yellow, or white onion can be used. Two roma tomatoes can be substituted for the tomato.
