This tater tot casserole is an easy five-ingredient recipe (not including salt and pepper) the kids will enjoy. You can make this dish with any kind of hamburger meat (85% lean, 90% lean, 93% lean, etc.). I recommend extra lean ground beef or grass-fed beef because you don't really need the extra juiciness from the fat in the beef to make this casserole delicious.

Use the best-quality green salsa you can find for this chicken casserole - it makes all the difference. I recommend Trader Joe's or Frontera salsa. They're readily available and really up the flavor ante of this recipe.
This turkey casserole is a great way to use leftover roast turkey. This casserole has all the flavors of chicken cordon bleu in one easy, one-dish meal.
This rich and satisfying mac and cheese recipe takes the traditional mac and cheese and cranks it up a notch -- or three. Fresh spinach and bacon give this mac and cheese recipe a hearty, soul-satisfying flavor.
