Super Easy Mexican Casserole

Super Easy Mexican Casserole

1 14oz bag of tortilla chips
2 cans of Cream of Chicken Soup
2 lbs of Hamburger (I like the cheap 73/27 for this because it really separates when you cook it so it’s almost like Taco Bell meat)
1 can of your favorite Rotel
1/2 cup of milk
1 taco seasoning packet
1 to 2 cups of shredded cheese (1 would do but we like 2)

Preheat oven to 325.

Brown hamburger with the taco seasoning packet according to packet directions. While hamburger is cooking, crush up tortilla chips and put them in a 9×13 baking pan.

When seasoned hamburger is done, mix it with the soup, milk and Rotel. Pour mixture evenly over tortilla chips then top with shredded cheese. Bake about 20 minutes until heated through and cheese it melted.

I served mine with sour cream and Lipton Spanish Rice and re-fried beans on the side.

KFC Mashed Potato Bowl Replica Recipe

This is my version of KFC’s Mashed Potato Bowl. It’s is both easy and inexpensive!

My family and I love KFC’s Mashed Potato Bowls but when you have five children, too many trips through the drive thru can add up to a small fortune. So, I decided I was going to whip some of these up myself.  I got a thumbs up from my whole gang so, I thought I would share it with y’all.

Here’s the short and sweet of what I make mine with:

  • Walmart’s Great Value Popcorn Chicken (not nuggets) -  HINT! They taste better when cooked in the oven rather than the microwave.  Truth be told my kids prefer the Great Value over the name-brand popcorn chicken.
  • Mashed potatoes – You can make boxed or homemade.  For it to taste more like the mashed potatoes at KFC, make boxed.
  • Heinz Chicken Gravy -  I buy the Heinz in the glass jar, it’s as close as I could find to Kentucky Fried Chicken’s but let’s face it, there’s nothing like theirs!
  • Finely Shredded Colby and Monterrey Jack Cheese – I buy this shredded  in Walmart’s Great Value brand as well.
  • Corn -  The original Mashed Potato Bowls come with corn although we have them leave it off.  If you do like corn on yours,  I recommend buying frozen corn.

Once everything is cooked and heated up I let the kids make their own custom bowls.  I like to go with a little extra gravy on mine, as you can tell from my picture above.
