Mixed Vegetable Casserole (There is no real recipe for this. Just mix whatever you have on hand!)
1 lg. pkg. mixed vegetables cooked
1 lb hamburger browned
Lg. can cream of chicken soup
hash browns, warmed
Mix and bake at 350F for 30-40 minutes.
3c cooked chicken chopped
10 ¾ oz can cream of chicken soup undiluted
8 oz sour cream
T poppy seeds
1 ½ c crushed ritz crackers
¼ c butter melted
Combine chicken, sour cream and poppy seeds; spoon into a light greased 11x7 baking dish. Combine crushed crackers and butter. Sprinkle over chicken mixture. Bake uncovered at 350F for 30 minutes.
Adam made shake and bake chicken using the meal suggestions on the back of the ranch flavored shake and bake. It was quite good really. Need some ranch dip for the chicken.
Chili with Corn Dumplings
1 ½ lb ground beef
¾ c chopped onion
15 oz can whole kernel corn (do not drain)
16 oz can stewed tomatoes (do not drain)
16 oz can tomato sauce
2 T. chili powder
1 t red pepper sauce
1 1/3 c Bisquick original
2/3 c cornmeal
2/3 c mile
3 T chopped cilantro (we added this but I think it's just for looks so you could skip it)
Brown beef and onion in a large pot. Reserve ½ c corn and add the rest with liquid, tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili powder and pepper sauce to the beef mixture. Heat to boiling, reduce, cover and simmer 15 minutes.
Mix bisquick and cornmeal. Stir in milk and cilantro along with the ½ c corn. Drop by tablespoons onto the simmering chili. Cook uncovered over low heat 10 minutes. Cover and cook ten minutes longer.
All of these are easy to make and can be doubled.
