No. 3: Chipotle Chicken Nacho Casserole

Who doesn’t love nachos? Rachael “tiles” her chips, smoky chipotle chicken, and cheese so that the ingredients are well distributed, heats, and then tops with salsa, jalapenos and sour cream. Nothing wrong with any of that!

Tip: Make your life easier and give yourself more time to watch the games by using a pre-cooked supermarket rotisserie chicken!

No. 4: Cookie Monster’s Sausage and Zucchini Strata

This delicious casserole features layers of bread, zucchini, sausage and cheese. Even better – tell your kids that Cookie Monster invented it and they’ll be glad to eat it, and might even want to help make it!

No. 7: Tuna Casserole Recipe

This classic Tuna Casserole recipe is a throwback! Sliced, white button mushrooms are browned and added with onion, garlic cloves, celery, dry Sherry, fresh bay and thyme. We stir in super-wide egg noodles to the savory mixture. Then top with grated gruyere cheese, Parmigiano-Reggiano, bread crumbs and parsley.

Love boxed hamburger kits but want to make it yourself and know exactly what fresh ingredients are going into it? Try this Cheesy Cheeseburger Casserole? Yep! In a large skillet, we heat ground beef, onions, tomato sauce and seasonings. Mix in pasta, ricotta, sour cream, bell peppers and scallions.
