I'm supposed to take a main dish to a high school end-of-season sports potluck. Any suggestions?
TIA!

Chicken Tortilla Casserole

I just made a quick and easy chicken tortilla casserole which turned out well. This fed 5 people who ate seconds, so you can double or triple.

1. Shred meat from a roasted deli chicken
2. Heat oven to 350
3. Brown chopped onion, green pepper, and celery in oil (I bought a bag of ready-made PictSweet )
4. Cover bottom of casserole with spoonfuls of large can of purchased red enchilada sauce (I use mild, which might be best for a crowd who will have varying tastes)
5. Add remaining can of sauce to sauteed veggies, reserving some for the top of the casserole (I toweled up some oil first)
6. Tear a dozen corn tortillas into quarters and lay one layer on bottom
7. Top with 1/2 of of the shredded chicken, veggies/sauce mixture, and about 1/3 of a 2 cup package of shredded Mexican blend cheese (I use low fat)
8. Add another layer of tortilla quarters and repeat step 7
9. Add the final layer of tortilla quarters and pour reserved sauce over. Swirl about 1/2 c. sour cream around (more if desired).
10. Cover and bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes until hot and bubble around edges. Remove cover and sprinkle final 1/3 cheese. Heat until melted and let stand 10 minutes.

This a versatile recipe and you can add chopped green chilis, chopped black olives, drained canned tomatoes, frozen or canned corn. You can also spice it up with cumin, garlic. There are many variations online.

Lasagna is an ever-popular standby. Baked ziti. Sour cream chicken enchiladas.

Currently cooking the crock pot chicken and dumplings...put in some chicken thighs and water (2 cups) with onion, garlic, celery, carrots, and potatoes. After about 6-8 hours (could halve it if on high), I will take out the chicken to remove skin and bones, and add 1 can of refrigerator biscuits cut into pieces. Cook on high for 15 minutes or so. Surprisingly good.

I'm going to fix Giada's potato/tomato salad for a retirement pitch in tonight. I'm x's the recipe by 5 and will split it for birthday lunch tomorrow at church. Just google Giada at foodnetwork to find the recipe. It is so colorful and very easy to fix.

I get 2 bags of their shredded cabbage, a handful of the salted blister peanuts, a handful of dried cranberries and toss with their Thai Peanut dressing. It is always a hit and easy to throw it all together. It is just a bit on the spicy side.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Get a bag of frozen meatballs. cook them in the oven. I buy the sweet and sour jar (it is a red sauce) in the Oriental section at Wal-Mart. It depends on how many meatballs you have, for the number of jars of sauce you need. I heat the sauce in in a pan, add a green chopped pepper. I put the cooked meatballs in a crockpot, pour the sauce on them, mix it up, and there you go. I never have any leftovers!! Yum, sounds good, I may have to fix that today.
