This easy Chicken Enchilada Casserole will get raves from everyone in your family (unless you have someone who doesn't like Mexican food, which I seriously love myself.) If you happen to have leftover cooked chicken, this recipe is even simpler to make. Disclaimer: mouths may water while this casserole is baking. Just so you know.

This Cheesy Chicken Casserole will warm up everyone and my bet is that it will become a favorite dinner in your family! Once you get everything together and into a baking dish (treat yourself to a new glass baking pan at Amazon if yours is worn out from holiday cooking duty!) sit back, relax and enjoy the mouth-watering aromas drifting from your kitchen!

This is probably my favorite go-to casserole when I want a very budget-friendly dinner (aka cheap!) that is fast to make too. Do I ask for too much?? 

Anyhoo, there are variations you can easily make to the recipe for this Cheesy Chili Bake depending on your family's preferences. And on the ingredients you have handy.

I use vegetarian chili and sometimes skip on the corn if I do not have any handy. The kids always love this dish, and I love how it barely dings my grocery budget!!

This Chili Cheese Dog Bubble Up Casserole recipe from Pillsbury is a fun quirky kind of dinner to serve to kids. All you really need are hot dogs (or veggie dogs), Pillsbury biscuits (always awesome to have on hand), chili and cheddar cheese. Bake for about 20 minutes, and you have a yummy kid-friendly budget dinner ready to serve.

Okay, so tell me that this picture of Creamy Spinach Tortellini is not making you hungry. Like right now. Go on, I dare you. I Double Dog Dare You (sorry, little Christmas humor still hanging around here, LOL) This gorgeous recipe full of cheese and spinach needs just 5 ingredients and about 30 minutes to cook.

You must try this one.

Really, seriously, try it. And if you have kiddos who are not particularly fond of spinach, well then bribe them with ice cream. (This easy homemade ice cream recipe doesn't even need an ice cream maker!)
