Some of the recipes we enjoyed last month at our house

Here are some of the recipes I cooked last month

Creamy Beef and Corn Casserole

Philadelphia Cream Cheese cb 1981

Yield: 6 servings.

One of my favorites

1 lb ground beef

1/2 c. chopped onion

1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, cubed

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 (12 oz.) can whole kernel corn, drained

1/4 c. chopped pimento

1 can refrigerator biscuits

Salt

pepper to taste

Brown meat; drain. Add onion; cook until tender. Add cream cheese and soup, mixing well. Stir in corn, pimento and seasonings. Pour into 1-1/2-quart casserole. Separate dough into 10 biscuits. Cut each in half, forming 20 half-circles (I cut into quarters) Place biscuits, cut-side down, around edge of casserole. I top the biscuits with paprika and parsley flakes for color. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until biscuits are browned.


Taco Salad

Serves 6 to 8.

Been making this since the 70's

1 lb ground beef

1 pkg taco seasoning (original recipe called for 2 pkg) I use Taco Bell brand

1 head lettuce, coarsely chopped

2 or 3 medium firm tomatoes, diced (I remove seeds and pulp)

1/2 cucumber, chopped

2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded, or Monterey Jack

2 cans (16 oz) Ranch style beans, drained or any brand chili beans, or kidney beans, drained, or drained black beans, or pinto beans, drained or red beans, drained

4 green onions, diced ( I used 1/2 of white onion)

1 cans (4 oz) black olives, sliced

1 pkg (regular size bag, not snack size) Nacho Doritos, broken, but not finely crushed

1 bottle Green Goddess dressing

salt

pepper

Brown ground beef in skillet. Drain oil and add taco seasoning mix. Combine lettuce, tomatoes, onions, olives, cucumber, cheese, beans and beef into large bowl and mix lightly with big spoon. Add chips and dressing just before serving. Season to taste and serve immediately. This needs to be eaten immediately because the chips get soggy and the lettuce gets wilty, if you put it away for later.

I chop the cucumbers in the Vidalia chopper or genius chopper, with large squares blade

1 (2 lb) pkg frozen hash brown potatoes, partially thawed

Uh OHHHH.  I did not even notice the recipes looked so great and down home.  I am still hungry all I have had today is water and one mini tootsie roll.  I told myself I could have one if I went at lunch and had my car state inspected and bought a gingerbread boy and girl for my two grandchildren.  The trick is not to eat them myself.  Meat and potato type meal sounds so much better now.Woman LOL

Hi @aroc3435!

 

Want to hear something funny? I knew it was an old post before I even looked at the date, because I actually remembered it from its initial posting! LOL!

 

The way these old posts get resurrected is because someone bumps them up.

You can usually figure that the 1st poster you see below the old post is the bumpee. 

 

Personally I couldn't care less how old a post is, but do feel sorry for anyone who responds to it, since the original OP may be long gone.
