I need some fresh ideas for suppers. I have cookbooks a glore, but have made alot of the recipes over and over again, any ideas for quick meals, hamburger dishes etc..need something new and exciting, plus easy.
MO_cows":1facdioi said:How about beefy spanish rice? Skillet casserole - you need a big skillet with tight fitting lid. Brown 1 pound burger, adding chopped onion/garlic if you like and time permits. Drain off fat if needed, add 1 cup rice, 1/2 cup salsa, 1 1/2 cups water. Salt/pepper/cumin to taste. Stir, bring to bubbling, cover and cook on low heat 20-25 mins until rice is done. Put grated cheddar/colby jack/mex blend cheese over it and re-cover until cheese melts. Could make it even quicker with minute rice, but the liquid measurements would change according to package directions.
Quesadillas - make with leftover cooked meat. Chicken, pork, beef all work. Chop up meat, season by tossing with salt/pepper/cumin and a little salsa, or chili powder, or canned green chilis. Heat skillet, put 1 large flour tortilla in skillet and sprinkle half of it with shredded cheese and meat. Fold over in half. Just needs to cook a minute, then flip over. Just needs lightly browned and cheese melted. Cut in thirds (triangles), dip in salsa and/or sour cream. Home-made bar food.

1 lb hamburger Browned and drained
1 16oz can of pork and beans
1 diced onion
1/2 diced green pepper
@ 1 TB catsup
@ 1 TB mustard
@ 2 TB of molasses or honey
Begin browning the burger, add the onion and pepper as soon as you drain the burger. cook until onion and pepper are tender then add the sauce and beans and warm through. serve over fresh baked biscuits. Good and filling.
