This is something that I’ve been making for years.  It’s really quick, just a few ingredients and all cooked in one pan.  So gather your ingredients….

Add the oil to the pan then add chicken and the onion.  Saute until chicken is cooked through.  I like to set up the rest of my ingredients next to my pan.  Once chicken is cooked pour the flour over the top then add the chicken stock and ranch dressing.  While it’s coming to a boil cut up your tortillas like a pie.  Once it’s to a boil add your tortillas to the top of the skillet and stir to combine. Cook for around 3-5 minutes.  On top of the chicken & tortillas pour the entire jar of salsa on top.  Don’t stir.  Place cheese on top.  Cook until cheese it melted.  Serve with some lettuce and sour cream.  And here you are….

Cheesy Pierogi Casserole

My 9 yr old’s will readily say that his favorite meal is “Pierogies.”  This casserole was born from the fact that I was really getting tired of the same pierogi with butter while it is good it really needed some jazzing up.  The first time I made this for him within the first few bites he was in heaven and thus the Cheesy Pierogi Casserole’ became a keeper in this house.

Getting creative with some of my families favorites is so much fun for me.  Yes, I am boring and you know I’m okay with that!  I wanted a unique dessert so I came up with this Chocolate Bottom Strawberry Cheesecake. How could I make my husbands favorite appetizer a little different? Boom Wing Sauce Sliders!  Thankfully my family is up to the task  of trying out the end results.

While I have attempted the homemade version of pierogies, honestly the time & effort were not nearly as good as the boxed version.  I was kind of sad about this because I usually say that homemade anything is better than boxed.  What I did was make the same roux I use for Macaroni & Cheese and add ham.  It really takes an average side and makes a meal out of it.  Not only is this delicious, it’s quick to make.

Cook the pierogi according to package directions.  This typically takes 8-10 minutes in boiling water to cook all the way through once cooked, add them to a strainer while the roux is made.

Now it’s time to make the ham & cheese mixture or ‘roux’ if you prefer.  Gather the ingredients…..

Cheesey Casserole with Ham ingredients

Using the same pan start melting 4 Tbs. butter.  Add the diced ham.  Cook for about 1-2 minutes.  Add 2 Tbs. flour & pepper to the mixture and stir then add 1 cup milk and half the package of cheese to the sauce and cook for about 3-4 minutes or until thickened.  Once the sauce is thickened combine the cooked Pierogies with the ham & cheese sauce.

Add to a 8×11 greased serving dish and top with remaining cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  All this cheesy goodness is a perfect quick weeknight meal the whole family will love.  I served this with a bagged Fresh Express Bacon Caesar Salad & roasted Brussel spouts to round the meal out.  And here you are…..
