    Our can of everything dinner is ground beef cooked with a chopped onion and green bell pepper, can of drained corn, can of mexican style tomatoes, can of drained kidney beans, and a can of drained sliced olives. Add everything once the meat is browned and drained and heat thoroughly. Serve with tortilla or corn chips and a dollop of sour cream.

      Goodness, forgot you can add a cup of any cooked pasta and a little shredded cheese to this and it’s terrific.

  2. Lauren

    My go-to is probably homemade mac and cheese. If even that is too much, then it’s breakfast for dinner!

    Chicken & dumplings. Make up a recipe of biscuts (what, five minutes?), take some of my leftover shredded chicken from the freezer (always make extra chicken for easy meals later), pour in some canned broth or cream of chicken soup, bake for fifteen minutes. Even put in some vegetables if you want. One of my favorites.

  4. Shari

    Go-to dinner is definitely pasta. Can’t get quicker than pasta, it’s easy to make even with a toddler underfoot, and everyone likes it.

  5. Nicole-Lynn

    Great giveaway! My ‘go to’ dinner on busy weeknights or even during the weekend is my Bisquick Reduced Fat Chicken Pot Pie! It’s so delicious and easy to make!

  6. Niki

    Chicken breast and rice w/ caramelized onions mixed in.
    It takes seriously 20 mins to make and it is soooo yummy. I never gt sick of it

  7. Dani

    Our go to meal is grilled hamburgers which is great because my husband grills while I get other things done!

  8. MomOf4InPA

    On busy nights I cook Mex-Fest. Just make some taco meat, and those who want nachos can make those, those who want soft tacos can make those, and those who want taco salad can do that also. That way I just cook up one quick pan of seasoned hamburger, and everyone can use it they way they like it best.

  9. Lisa

    My go-to dinner is shoyu chicken. Just boil up some chicken in a sauce of soy sauce, sugar, garlic, ginger, green onions, and water. Serve with rice and canned veggies and you’re done. Quick and delicious.

  10. jodi

    My to-go to meals are spaghetti and Hawaiian Haystacks. Super fast, easy, and filling, and cheap!

  11. Brooke

    Potatoes and Corn… Wash, pierce and nuke 5-10 small red potatoes until slightly overdone and wrinkled. Use a fork to smash/cut the potatoes into bite sized chunks. Place pats of butter liberally on the potatoes. Open a can of Niblet’s Corn and drain, then dump directly onto potatoes. Use desired amount of Ranch Salad Dressing and Lawry’s seasoned salt to finish it off. It really is yummy. My family loves it!

  12. Annette

    My go to dinner is tacos. It is quick and easy and I usually have the ingredients on hand.

  13. Tess M

    Our fav last minute meal is tacos or burritos. I usually have the cooked meat already frozen so it’s a cinch to throw together =)

  14. kelly marderosian

    My go to meal is definitley tuna casserole! Its quick and easy and I always have the ingredients at hand! I’d love this cookbook for some new quick ideas! Thanks!
