Tater Tot Casserole

 Tater Tot Casserole

1-2 lb ground turkey cooked, seasoned, drained
1 bag tater tots
1 can cream of mushroom
1 can cream of chicken
1 can evaporated milk

Brown meat and spice as desired.  Place in large casserole dish. Cover with tater tots. Mix soup and milk together. Pour over top. Bake at 350 for 1 Hour. Makes 1 9X13 casserole.

Currently this recipe feeds our family of  9, but we have some littles. I would double it with several hungry teens. Make 2 pans. We usually steam a large pot of broccoli as a side. Or we warm up some corn and peas. Enjoy!

Mac N Beef

2-2.5 lbs. ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
2 cans diced tomatoes with mild green chilies
2 cups dried elbow macaroni
2 cups shredded cheese

1. Brown meat and onion in skillet. Season as you desire.

2. Add zesty tomatoes (don not drain) and 2 cups of water. Bring to boil and stir in elbow macaroni. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until pasta is tender.

3. Top with cheese. Serves 8

We serve this with chips, sour cream, and a salad or other vegetable. (You may want to double this if you have lots of hungry boys!) The kids LOVE this!
