To freeze items such as chili and pasta sauce for future meals, consider dividing them up among jumbo-sized muffin cups. That way you’ll have individual servings that will defrost much more quickly than a huge ice block of food. Simply divvy up the food among the muffin cups, place tray in freezer until leftovers are frozen solid, unmold, and then keep food pucks in an airtight container in the freezer. Nonstick and bendable silicone jumbo muffin cups make it easy for you to unmold your frozen leftovers.
