EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If you're really a planner, consider cooking up several pounds of beef ahead of time and freezing it in resealable plastic bags in 1/2-pound (1-cup) batches. Then you’ll have it on hand for yummy dishes like this!

If your family loves salsa, serve it with this Mexican-style casserole.

Replace taco-seasoned cheese with pizza-seasoned cheese and use crushed crisp breadsticks instead of the tortilla chips. Sprinkle hot casserole with sliced ripe olives, and you have Pizza Potatoes Casserole!
