More "Keepers"...

Beef Tips Cooked in Wine

2 lbs. beef tips
1 whole garlic, chopped
1 lg. onion, chopped
2 cns. golden mushroom soup
3/4 c red cooking wine
1/2 c water
1 (8 oz) can mushrooms, drained - or fresh mushrooms (the only way to go!)

Brown beef tips in butter in a large pot. Add the other ingredients, simmer on low heat, covered, for 2 hours or until beef tips are tender. Serve on bed of rice or noodles. YUMMM.... Soooo good!!! :)

Tortilla Bake

1 1/2 lbs. hamburger meat
1 cn. rotel
1 cn. enchilada sauce
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. pepper
6 tortillas
1 3oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 4oz. cn. diced green chilies
8 oz. pkg. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

Cook beef and drain. Stir rotel, enchilada sauce, chilies, cumin, pepper. Cover and simmer 5 minutes or so. Warm cream cheese in microwave and spread over tortillas. Layer tortillas w/ cream cheese, then cover with meat mixture, and then repeat. Cover and bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Spread cheese on top and bake 5 mintues more.

* This recipe belongs to my mother-in-law and is one of my husband's favorites! Unfortunately, the kids and I don't like a lot of spice - so I will usually buy the mild version of the rotel, the enchilada sauce, and the chilies. Sometimes I even omit the cumin and black pepper all together. I also add more tortillas and more cream cheese!!! Yummm...

Italian Meatball Sandwich Casserole

The idea of a meatball sandwich really grosses me out - but this recipe is out of this world! I can't even begin to tell y'all how good this is!!! No1here hates the mayo in this dish, so I usually just omit it from his side of the pan.

I made this again tonight and omitted the mayo all together and used ricotta instead! It was so much better. Hubby really liked it this time!
