    My recipie is not necessarily the quickest but it is the easiest and gets the best reviews from anyone that has it. I brown some butterfly pork chops, remove them and add a packet of Lipton Onion Soup Mix, can or jar of beef or pork gravy (whatever I have on hand), fill can/jar with water and add to mixture, stir it up and add long quartered potatoes and the pork chops back in the pan. Simmer until the potatoes are cooked through. Done. You can thicken the gravy if you'd like but normally my family doesn't. Easy Peasy!

    I don't have a name for it, but I cook 1 box of 5 min couscous (I like Near East's roasted pine nut), heat 1 can of black beans (low or no sodium), and dice an avocado and tomato (or 1 can diced tomatoes works). Serve the couscous topped with the beans, then add avocado and tomato. Quick, easy, and relatively healthy. sarah{at}rothwell-enterprises{dot}com

    Our fam's quick go to meal is soft tacos. I make a bunch of taco meat when I do it & freeze portions of it to use when we need to — making it even quicker & easier! (especially with ready made tortillas & buying shredded cheese too!) 🙂

    My next door neighbor fishes almost everyday and is kind enough to share his catch with me. One of my fave go to dinners is fresh fish, redskin potatoes, garlic bread and salad. Easy and yummy.

    My go-to is Mock Chicken Pot Pie. Two cans of Cream of Chicken soup in a stock pot, take 4 boneless-skinless chicken breasts, boil until cooked, cut into cubes and return to pot. Then take chopped onion, a can of potatoes and can of sliced carrots and a can of peas and add to the mixture and cook until hot and onions are cooked through. Pour into a 9×13 pan, top with sliced buttermilk biscuits cut in half, and bake in a 350 degree oven until biscuits are brown (about 10 minutes).

    My go-to meal is baked chicken with a jar of salsa dumped on top. About 10 minutes before it's done, I sprinkle some shredded cheese on top just to melt. Serve over rice with a dollop of sour cream!

    Our family's easy go-to meal, like many others here, is tacos..but often just with whatever we have on hand from leftovers – so sometimes bbq chicken – or bbq pork, maybe even shredded beef, topped with salsa, cheese, sour cream and then grilled together in a skillet almost like a quesadilla!! Delicious and easy!!!

    Taco soup is definitely one of those easy go-to meals for us. It's always tasty and it's so easy to make, with most things almost always on hand!
