6 Layer Casserole

All I can say is YUMMY!
I got this from my sister's ward cook book years ago and have used it a bunch since.

2 med. potatoes, sliced
2 med. onions, sliced
1 ½ lbs. ground beef or turkey (raw)
½ cup uncooked rice
2 stalks celery, sliced
3 med. carrots, sliced
3 cups chicken broth

Cover the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish with potatoes, then onions, meat, rice, celery, and carrots. Sprinkle each layer with salt and pepper as you go. Pour the broth over the entire dish and cover with foil. Bake at 400* for 1 hour or until the carrots and potatoes are hot.

Easy Hamburger Stroganoff

1 pound cooked ground hamburger, seasoned to taste*
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can milk (you may need more depending on desired consistency)
1 packet onion soup mix
1 can sliced mushrooms (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a large skillet, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve over rice or egg noodles.

*I like to buy a lot of hamburger in advance at a place like Costco or wherever it is on sale, cook up all the hamburger and then divide it into 1 pound portions. I put the cooked and seasoned hamburger in freezer bags and freeze it. It keeps really well and makes it really easy to add hamburger to recipes like this or any that call for cooked ground beef. When I use it in this recipe I just add it to the skillet frozen!

2 medium tomatoes, diced
1 bunch green onions or red onion, chopped
1 can black beans, drain and rinse
1 small bottle of Catalina dressing
1 can kidney beans, drained and rinse (optional)
1 cup grated cheese
1 pkg. Doritos, crushed

Prepare lettuce and set in crisper to chill. Combine tomatoes, green onions, olives, and beans with the Catalina dressing. Chill together for several hours or overnight. When ready to serve, combine all the ingredients. Toss in the cheese and Doritos just before serving. You can add other vegetables besides what is listed: Bell peppers, radishes, and broccoli.

Tip: Really good with 1 lb. hamburger meat… browned and cooked with taco seasoning.
