Baked Potato Casserole


I got this recipe from my aunt who is a great cook and baker. She even said that she would not normally use instant potatoes for anything, but it works great in this. It is very delicious and an easier version of a twiced baked potato.


2 pouches of Idahoan original mashed instant potatoes

1/2 cup cream cheese

1/2 cup sour cream

5 slices bacon- cooked and chopped into bits

1-pkg of dry ranch dressing mix

Shredded cheddar cheese- approx half of a bag

Prepare instant potatoes according to instructions. Add sour cream, cream cheese, ranch mix, bacon, and generous handful of cheese. My measurements of the sour cream and cream cheese were approximate amounts, as I did not measure it. Please taste this and make adjustments if necessary. Pour into a 9 x 13 pan that has been sprayed with non stick cooking spray. Top with more shredded cheese. Bake for 20-30 minutes at 350.

Cheesy Beef Enchiladas

Makes 6-10 servings

cook time 30 min at 350 degrees


10 soft flour tortillas

1lb ground beef

1pkg rice-a-roni spanish rice or sometimes I just use 2 cups leftover rice of any kind

16 oz sour cream

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 pkt taco seasoning

1/3 to 1/2 cup pace picante sauce

Lots of cheese, monterey/cheddar blend (about 4 cups)

1 small can sliced olives


Using a large skillet, brown ground beef, drain fat. Add rice, taco seasoning, salsa, 1/2 of cream of mushroom soup, half of sour cream, 1/2 can of olives, and 1 to 1 1/2 cups of cheese.  Mix together well.

Spray a 13×9 in pan with cooking spray.  Take tortilla and fill with a portion of your mix in the skillet.  Roll up and line in pan. Use 8-10 tortillas..depending on how much you fill each one, you could use less or more, do what you’d like. 

Mix up remaining sour cream, soup, and olives together in bowl then spread over the top of enchiladas lined in pan.  Cover well with lots of cheese!  Bake at 350 for 20 minutes then turn on broiler for final 1o minutes to get the cheese nice and baked on.
