Mexican Corn Bread Stack

Filed under: Casseroles, Leftovers, wild game — ruralmomof3 @ 12:25 pm

I love Mexican!  I have some friends who make this “Shepard Pie” like Mexican casserole that I absolutely love.  I had a variety of leftovers the other day and realized that I could make that casserole as a “stack” and it would be really yummy!  Here’s what you need!

The Recipe:


Fresh from the oven Cornbread

Leftover meat (I used smoked venison, but beef, chicken, whatever), hot

Shredded cheddar

Stack these in order on each dinner plate and enjoy!

Chicken and Rice dish

Filed under: Casseroles, Leftovers, Poultry — ruralmomof3 @ 3:37 pm

Use broth in place of water to make rice. Before bringing it to the boil, add an appropriate amount of chicken or turkey and cook it all together. If you have pre-cooked rice, saute it all in a frying pan. Serve with cheese or soy sauce. You can also add any veggies that you like. If you like creamy casseroles, stir in an undiluted can of cream of celery, chicken, or mushroom soup. Add milk to make it the right consistancy and heat through.

You can also make this in the oven.  Use the cooked rice, mixed with the meat, and soup.  Put in a greased casserole.   Sprinkle cheese on top and bake in moderate oven until bubbly.
