Texas Tips It's a Tough Economy.......

We all know the economy is still pretty tough, most Americans are pinching their pennies even tighter these days, I know I am.  It seems prices just keep rising.  Feeding your family good meals on a budget can be such a challenge, we all get tired of the same thing week after week.  So today I thought I would share a recipe with you that is great for your budget, feeds a good size crowd, and is very yummy! (It is one of my families favorite meals)

Its based on Tater Tots:
Tater Tot Casserole!

1 Pound of Ground Beef
2 Cans of Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 Can of Whole Kernel Corn (drained)
1 Package of Tater Tots
Salt and Pepper to Taste

Brown the ground beef in a skillet on your stove, drain off the fat, add the soup and corn.  Stir it all together and let it simmer as you preheat your oven to the temperature recommended on the package of tater tots.
On the bottom of your baking pan put about half the bag of tater tots.  Spoon the meat mixture over the top, then add the rest of the tater tots.  Bake per instructions on the tater tots.  If desired right before taking out of the oven you can sprinkle with grated cheese and let it melt.

Serve with a salad and rolls and you have a great meal!  For larger crowds simply double the recipe.

Here is another great item that won't bust your budget and is great to have while you are cooking.
