Congratulations Casserole

Why the silly name? I put this together with leftovers and pantry items for dinner. My 6 year old who loves cooking and recipes asked me if I followed a new recipe or I made this one up. When I told her it was my own, she quickly responded;"Congratulations, it's very good!" I just thought that was too cute.:)

That being said, it passed the test with 4 kids. Not a single complaint, I have to admit it is really good, comfort food. The best part about it, I used leftover ground beef and potatoes that would have been tossed otherwise.

I find it very helpful personally to keep some basic pantry staples on hand for those times when you want to whip up something quick.

Total Time: About 10 minutes

Yield: Around 8-10

Ingredients:

My ground beef was originally prepared with an envelope of taco seasoning added. I would suggest adding this to yours as it gives it great flavor!

I imagine this would also turn out quite tasty with leftover chicken if that is what you happen to have. Just use up those leftovers, it's like getting a free meal! :)

*You could easily half this recipe for a smaller casserole*

Steps:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, taco or burrito seasoning, mixed vegetables and mushroom soups.
  2. Spread into a 13 by 9 inch casserole dish.

  4. Sprinkle with cheese.
  5. Spread potatoes over all, sprinkle with dried basil. It tastes good and makes it look nicer.
  6. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 35 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and enjoy!

I had a mother-in-law that could make a meal out of nothing. This gal just did the same thing. Thumbs up to you.

The recipe calls for "3 5 oz. cans Cream of Mushroom Soup" which doesn't seem correct. Should it read 1 (15 oz.) can or 3 (15 oz.) cans? Or should it be something totally different. Please correct the recipe. It sounds like it would be a delicious entree and I would love to be able to make it correctly. Thank you!

Editor's Note: The recipe has been corrected above to read 3 - 10.5 oz. cans
