It's a dish called a cowboy hot pot. It's a baked dish with fresh veggies and a can of beans. Here are the ingredients:

Potato
Cubed cheese
Green beans
Baked beans
Onion
Red pepper
Carrots
Frozen corn

I already baked it when we had dinner tonight and it made a *huge* amount .

Potatoes get really starchy and mushy. That is the only thing I see but with the cheese and baked beans you might not even notice.

 I think it sounds good and hearty.

 lol I didn't even answer the question about freezing, I think it would freeze pretty well, the ingredients freeze pretty well separately.

 It should be fine. My MIL freezes her fresh vegetable spaghetti sauce and it comes out like it was freshly cooked.

I freeze pre-baked so I dont know how it will do already cooked because then you are going to thaw and reheat.

 Chunks of potato often get mushy when frozen. It will freeze ok, but use it sooner rather than later.

We actually ended up eating it all! Which is awesome :) no need for freezing.

Potatoes would be my concern also. And the canned beans-beans can get tough,the sugars inside will change the bean's texture.
