Quick and Easy Dinner Recipes
by Barbara PenaSometimes getting dinner on the table seems like a daunting task, but with a little preplanning, it can be quick and easy -- and even save you money. These quick and easy dinner recipes make getting dinner on the table faster than ordering takeout!
This first recipe is great for the Mexican food lover. The soup and sour cream combine with the taco sauce and chilies to create a creamy but flavor-filled sauce. The chips add a simple but nice contrast. You can control the spiciness of this dish by using either a hot or mild taco sauce.
Chicken n' Chips
1 can cream of chicken soup
8 ounces sour cream
2 tablespoons taco sauce
1/4 cup chopped green chilies
3 cups cubed chicken
12 slices American cheese slices
4 cups broken tortilla chips
Stir together the soup, sour cream, taco sauce and chopped chilies. In a shallow 2 qt baking dish layer 1/2 of the chicken, soup mixture, cheese and tortilla chips. Repeat layers. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly. Serve the Chicken n' Chips with Spanish rice, refried beans and a fresh, crisp salad.
The second recipe is an easy spin on the traditional comfort food of Beef Stroganoff. The aroma of the garlic cooking is fabulous, and the flavors meld together very nicely.
