I love casseroles! It's probably because you can't get much more fattening and they're just too easy. Whether you're a SAHM, a working mom, a single mom...or not a mom at all, that's just too irresistible! I thought I'd share a couple of casserole that are my favorites.

Firecracker Casserole (click on link for printer friendly page)
1 lb ground beef
1 med chopped onion
2-3 tsp cumin (I prefer more)
2 cans Ranch style beans

Brown beef with onions. After drained, add cumin and beans. Pour into baking pan.
Add layer of flour tortillas. Then add layer of your favorite cheese...Mexican cheese, colby-jack, cheddar...

Mix small can of cream of mushroom soup with can of Rotel. Pour over top.

Bake one hour at 350 degrees. I usually add a little more cheese to the top about 15 minutes before it's ready.

Chicken tetrazzini Casserole (click on link for printer friendly page)

Approx. 18oz cooked spaghetti noodles
can of chicken broth
1 small can cream of mushroom
1 small can cream of chicken
cheddar cheese
shredded chicken ( You can use canned chicken if in a hurry. I usually boil three breasts and shred the meat.)
1/4 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
1 small onion chopped

Add all ingredients together in pan. Bake at 375 degrees, 45 mins-1 hour


  1. That firecracker casserole sounds yummy! Well have to try it!! I love casseroles, too. So easy.
    Diet and disease are definitely related, as are attitude and disease, I think!

  2. I ♥ casseroles and stews. We had a lot of them over Winter. Now that we're coming into Summer, I'm looking forward to salads and BBQ's.

    Thanks for the recipes. x

  3. I sometimes refer to myself as the casserole queen, learned to cook some great ones from my mom! Your chicken one sounds delish! Started following you from MBC....
