    1 can of cream of mushroom soup
    Fry you hamburger meat with the onions and and garlic, drain the grease
    cook your corn tortillas in grease to soften them, fill each tortilla with the meat mixture and place in a baking sheet.
    In a pot melt the velveta cheese, with the canned milk, green chilies, and cream of mushroom soup . Pour over filled corn tortillas and sprinkle shredded cheese over the top.
    Bake until cheese is melted
    Usually makes about 24 enchaladas and I sever it with a salad

  • Turkey Chili - I'm sure you can make it with ground beef, and it makes a lot...double if you have a lot of people maybe?

    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 onion, chopped
    1 red bell pepper, chopped
    1 tbsp minced garlic (2 – 3 cloves)
    1 lb ground turkey
    ½ tbsp salt
    2 tbsp chili powder
    1 tsp ground coriander
    1 tsp oregano
    1 14.5-oz can tiny diced tomatoes (I pureed this becauseI hate tomato chunks!)
    1 15-oz can tomato sauce
    1 15-oz can black beans (rinse and drain)
    1 15-oz can kidney beans

    Heat the oil in a large pot, such as a dutch oven. Add the onion, pepper, and garlic, and cook till onions are translucent. Add the ground turkey and break it up really good. Cook until the meat is no longer pink. Add salt, chili powder, coriander, and oregano and stir. Add tomatoes (like I said, I pureed mine), tomato sauce, and black beans (you rinsed and drained them, right???) Simmer as long as you want,

  • For an italian dish--If you add your favorite spagetti sauce to the ground beef (you can put your own spin to it, spices, olive oil, etc.), you can do layers with either egg noodle or spiral type noodles and paramsean cheese with mozzerella cheese on top. It is like a lasagna casserole but its a lot easier to make.

  • My usual standby for huge groups is taco salad - basic recipe fills a Tupperware fix n mix - multiply as needed:
    1 head lettuce (washed and torn)
    1 bag shredded cheddar
    1 bag taco flavor Doritos (crushed)
    1 pkg grape tomatoes (halved)
    1 med onion chopped (or substitute like amount scallions)
    1 lg can sliced black olives (drained)
    1 1/2 lbs ground beef
    taco seasoning
    salt, pepper, chili powder & cumin to taste
    1 lg bottle Western French dressing

    Prep all veggies as instructed. Brown the ground beef and mix in the taco seasoning as directed on the package, then drain. Allow it to cool a bit so it doesn't wilt the lettuce. In the order the ingredients are listed, put 1/3 of each into the bowl in layers. After pouring 1/3 the dressing over the layer, mix thoroughly. Repeat with another 1/3, then finally the last 1/3.

    (you can also do this with shredded chicken)

  • If you will consider dried lentils or beans (cheaper and healthier), send me a message offlist.

  • Hamburger Quiche:

  • If it's not too formal you could do WALKING TACOS.
    It's either a snack size or the 99c bag of fritos with taco meat, salsa, cheese, and sour cream. You just crunch up the chips a little and put the stuff on top of it, right in the bag and eat it with a fork. It's kind of a concession stand/football game kind of snack but I have made it for dinner a few times.
