Prep and Freeze: Bell Peppers

For a working mom, trying to get dinner on the table at a reasonable hour during the week can be difficult! I try to help myself out whenever I can with shortcuts that I can use during the week. One such trick is to prep and freeze. My local grocery store has had an abundance of beautiful bell peppers lately. Luckily, these will freeze perfectly for use in soups, stews, casseroles and fajitas.
Over the weekend, I bought 8 peppers in a variety of colors. During nap time, I spent 20 minutes in the kitchen dicing and slicing them and placed them in freezer bags in the freezer.  During the week, I can easily add these to my dinners without spending the time chopping.
