1 pound bulk pork sausage

1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted

3/4 cup whole milk

1/4 cup chopped onion

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

3 cups thinly sliced peeled potatoes (about 1-1/4 pounds)

1-2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. In a large bowl, combine the soup, milk, onion, onion and garlic powder, salt and pepper.

In an sprayed 9 x 13-in. baking dish, layer half the potatoes, soup-sausage mixture and cheese,; repeat layers.

Cover and bake at 350° for 1-1/2 hours or until potatoes are tender.

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped(18)
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, or 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided, plus more for seasoning
1 1/2 cups long-grain white rice
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 3/4 cups whole or 2% milk
Freshly ground black pepper
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 cup fresh or frozen peas
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided

Melt the butter in a large heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion,
thyme, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened,
about 8 minutes.
Add the rice and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until they smell toasty, about 1 minute.
Add the broth, milk, and remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt, and season with pepper. Bring to a
boil, stirring occasionally so that the rice doesn't stick to the pot. Add the chicken, stir to
combine, and bring back to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the
liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 15 minutes. (Add water as needed if the rice
absorbs it all before tender. If you'd like a browned top on the casserole, heat the broiler to high
Remove from the heat. Stir in the peas and 1 cup of the cheese. Taste and season with more salt
as needed. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese, then cover again and let sit for the cheese
to melt and the rice to steam, about 5 minutes. (For a browned top, place under the broiler for a
few minutes until the cheese turns golden-brown in spots.) Serve immediately.

1 tablespoon canola oil
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
1 head lettuce cut in layers, then chopped
1 large tomato diced
1 large sweet onion diced
1 can hot chili beans drained and rinsed lightly
12 oz. sharp cheddar cheese shredded
1 9-1/4-oz. bag Fritos corn chips
1 cup Kraft Catalina salad dressing

Warm a large skillet over medium heat. Add the canola oil and swirl to coat the pan. Crumble the
ground beef into the skillet, cooking and stirring until no longer pink.
Drain off any grease, then add the taco seasoning packet and water (according to package) and
continue cooking per packet instructions. Keep warm until ready to serve.
Meanwhile, toss together the lettuce, tomatoes, onions, beans, and cheese.
Add the bag of Fritos, partly crushed, and toss with 1 cup Catalina dressing (add more dressing,
if desired). Serve immediately.
Making the salad ahead of time? Once you've finished prepping and chopping, store the
ingredients separately in Ziploc bags or bowls with tight fitting lids. This will ensure the lettuce
doesn't get soggy from everything else in the bowl!
More veggies! Dice up a red bell pepper or cut an ear of fresh corn off the cob to add even more
goodness to this salad. If you like a bit more heat, prep a few fresh jalapeno slices too.
