Five Cheap and Easy Dinners. Main Dish Family Recipes.

The five easy family recipes on here are fast and easy meals. Our kids always loved them.

If you're working and need a dinner meal these cheap recipes will work. Most are also pretty quick to make.The enchiladas can be made the night before and heated up when you get home.

Kids are starting back to school and meals will need to be made. Some of these you can make right away when you get home. Some can be made ahead and warmed when you come home. Two of these recipes can be made in the slow cooker. A nice green salad with each one will work.

The first recipe is my enchiladas. I have made since our first year of marriage. I can tell you Old El Paso enchilada sauce has gotten thinner through the years. At one time, it was so thick. You can use corn or flour tortilla with the recipe. I have tried making enchilada sauce, but it never taste as good as Old El Paso.

Cook your own chicken or buy rotisserie chicken. You can also use hamburger in this recipe if I do this then I cook the onions with the hamburger.

I sometimes make them half chicken and half hamburger. I have a granddaughter who only wants cheese so I make one for her with just cheese. You can change it around any way you want.

The chicken recipes you can always use leftover turkey from Thanksgiving or Christmas. The recipes are a good way to use up holiday leftovers.

In the summer, we like sweet corn on the cob with just about anything. Here is the recipe I use to make my corn.

Aunt Sharon's Enchiladas

21/2 cups chicken or 1 lb. hamburger ( Cooked ) You can use leftover chicken or turkey

1 large bag of grated cheddar cheese

1 onion

10 count flour or corn tortillas

1 can of olives Large chopped onion

We made our enchiladas from our leftover Thanksgiving turkey last night. They were good.

If I use hamburger I fry the onions in with the hamburger.

Instructions

Have ready a 9 X 13 pan or larger spray it with Pam.

Setup the cheese, onion and meat in a bowls lined up. Remember you have to have enough of each to place in 10 tortillas.

Pour a can of enchilada sauce in a pie plate the largest size plate you have. Then dip a flour tortilla front and back in the sauce lay it in the 9 X 13 pan and add some cheese, some meat and some onions. (About a 1/4 cup of cheese and meat then as much onion as you want) Roll up tight as you can and add a toothpick to hold, continue until all 10 tortillas are used. When the sauce runs out in the pie pan add another can. When all tortillas are rolled up in pan pour any leftover sauce over top of tortillas in a pan. Add at least another can of sauce over the top of the 10 tortillas. Cover with grated cheddar cheese, olives and any leftover meat or onions you might have.

Cook covered in the oven at 425° until all cheese is melted and the enchiladas are heated through about 30 minutes. It will bubble and get brown around the edge. Makes 6 servings.

They can be made ahead and put in a refrigerator and cooked the next day. They're actually better that way the sauce soaks into them.

RoTel Tacos

INGREDIENTS:

1 package of tortillas any size you want

2 1/2 cups cooked chicken

1 can Rotel (mild)

1 can black olives

1/2 jar of large taco sauce (mild)

1 can black beans

1/4 cup oil

sour cream

cheddar cheese

salt to taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

Chop up the black olives and the onions. In slow cooker add all ingredients and cook for a few hours. This mixture can be made a day ahead in fact it has more flavor if it is. Heated up later.

Fry the tortillas in a small amount of oil. Place in frying pan fold over fry on one side until browned but not crisp, flip over and fry the other side drain on paper towel. Fill tortillas with mixture, add cheese and sour cream. Makes at least 6 servings.

NOTE:

I have made this with a frozen chicken breast. Place chicken in slow cooker, when chicken is cooked remove and cut up place chicken back in the mixture.

I also use whatever meats I have left over. Chicken, steak or pork. Today I'm making it before the Packer game and I'm using steak and chicken we had on the grill last night and I'm using up some Tyson grilled and ready chicken breast strips I had in the freezer. You can also use rotisserie chicken like I have in the picture.

Boiled Chicken for Recipes

1 large frying chicken

Place a large dutch oven on top of the stove with enough water in it to cover chicken. Place chicken in water if you need to add more water. Bring to boil, turn down temperature and simmer for 30 minutes to each pound of chicken. Remove from pan let cool and remove the skin and then remove chicken from the carcass for recipes. Save the water from chicken to make stock.

The carcass can be put back in the water with salt and pepper to taste. You can also add vegetables to the stock, carrots, celery and onions work well in the stock to give more flavor. Cook slowly until all meat comes off the bone. Remove from heat and strain.

You now have chicken stock, put stock in the refrigerator and use for soups. Once in the fridge for a couple hours you can skim the fat off the top and get rid of the fat if you don't want it.

Here's another inexpensive recipe I just read and tried from the old book, "I Hate to Housekeep". You just simmer a couple of chicken breasts in a cup and a half of water until they are tender then chop them up reserving the juice. Sauté a chopped up onion and a chopped up apple in 2 tablespoons of butter until tender/crisp. Add the chopped up chicken and a teaspoon of curry powder. Sauté for a few moments then add a can of cream of chicken soup and enough of the reserved chicken broth to make a nice sauce consistency. (If you have broth left, save it to make soup!) Heat through stirring fairly constantly. Serve this over brown or white rice.

You could probably add celery and other tasty veggies to the sauté and substitute a large can of chicken breast chunks if you wanted. You can also top it with raisins, nuts and other exotic tasties if you like.

SallyTX, Enjoyed reading about how you do your chicken. We do this type of thing when we put our chicken on the grill. It's amazing how far a chicken and it's juices can go for making more meals. Thank you for stopping by.


SallyTX profile image

SallyTX 3 years ago from Only In Texas!

Well, these look like nice, simple, affordable recipes. None of them are particularly unhealthy, and a lot can be done to healthy them up with product selection or by choosing to make your own bread dough instead of using prepared. It's a good idea to stew your chicken in advance like that. I like to stew my chicken before I roast it. That way it never ends up dry. Just put the whole bird in a pot of water with a cut up onion, 3 cut up stalks of celery and one chicken bouillion cube per cup of water. Bring it to a boil and then simmer it for an hour. Gently lift the bird out of the water using 2 big slotted spoons. Put it directly into a roasting pan with potatoes and big chunks of carrots. Baste everything with some of the juice from the pot and add spices as you wish (such as seasoning sale & pepper, rosemary, etc.) Roast at about 400 degrees for an hour or so 'til the veggies are done and the bird is browned (you may need to baste everything a time or two while cooking). Save the juice in the pot. You can use that and the leftover meat from the bird as the base for a big pot of soup!

Voted up and useful! ;D

Hi moonlake,

Really loved these recipes, with macaroni one being my favourite out of 5. In India we usually don't get things canned like tomatoes or beans as you suggested in Ham and Green Bean Dinner, but we do get fresh ones, so would it taste same if we used fresh ones?


moonlake profile image

moonlake 4 years ago from America Author

sgbrown, I have to come to your house and eat. Cornbread and fried okra my favorites. I had cornbread and milk the other day I was so hungary for it. You see I live in the north and they look at me like I'm crazy when I eat okra and cornbread. We couldn't even get okra here until Walmart came in now we can get frozen. It won't grow here. We don't eat venison like we use to. We eat the chops and get sausage made from it. My husband doesn't hunt anymore the boys still do.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment and vote.

All your recipes look delicious! One of my hubby's favorite meals is the macaroni, tomatoes and burger. The only difference is I used home canned stewed tomatoes and venison burger. I fry okra for a side and make a pan or cornbread. We can eat this until we pop! I am going to try the crescent roll casserole, I love crescent rolls so I would have to like this!

I am glad that I came across this... my husband and I were just talking about some quick and cheap meals that we could make throughout the week. The enchilada recipe looks familiar. I make one similar to it but I cook mine in the microwave and with canned chicken. The lattice topped chicken... that is on my radar. I want to try that. Awesome hub!

What a great find for me!

I can attest to the enchiladas - I make them almost exactly the same (sans black olives but I will add them now!). My kids, the neighbor kids - everyone wants to come over on enchilada night:). It HAS to be El Paso sauce though - I've tried others and it's not good at all.

Can't wait to try thatMacaroni Tomato casserole! I know everyone will love it. I like the ham and green bean too!
