Cheesy Potato Casserole with Ore-Ida® Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes

This post brought to you by Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine.

Now that spring is here, Easter is not very far away. I can’t wait to get prepared for easter brunch with the family! Brunch is not something that we get to enjoy very often, so I jump at my chances when they pop up. Since my cravings can’t wait until a brunch opportunity pops up, it doesn’t stop me from making my own ‘brunch’ dishes for my family at home. Since having a child, I always make Sunday breakfast complete with eggs, sausage, hash browns with the works.

A really good brunch dish is this Cheesy Potato Casserole recipe that’s made with Ore-Ida® Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes. I decided to try it when I discovered it on the Walmart website. Who knew Walmart.com was a good resource for easy recipes to prepare?

With so many recipes to choose from, I decided to try the Cheesy Potato Casserole, and it turned out excellent! Not only was it delicious, but it was also easy to prepare so you don’t have to be a kitchen ninja to do this right.

With a greased pan and lots of love, I made my own best version of this dish. As you can see, it goes really well with eggs and toast! The Cheesy Potato Casserole got the most requests for second helpings from both JP and his daddy.. That’s when I know a recipe is a keeper – no leftovers!

Be sure to give it a try for your easter brunches – you won’t be disapointed!

Spicy crispy chicken and avocado gameday wraps with Avocados From Mexico

I participated in this sponsored campaign for One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own.

I know that with football on every Sunday, I have more than enough excuses to make something with avocados. Instead of the usual guac recipes that I like to prepare using Avocados from Mexico, I decided to try a yummy hand-held snack that’s perfect for both kids and adults. After viewing some of the yummy recipe ideas online, I was craving some avocados!

It’s easily made – I heated up some crispy chicken strips that I had in the freezer and began to make my toppings. I started with the Ro-Tel tomatoes, then mixed up the sour cream & chili powder for a zesty spread. This recipe uses a can of Ro-Tel tomatoes – did you know that you can get a can for free when you buy 3 avocados from Mexico? Click to get the coupon from  AvocadoAllStars.com.

Assembling the wraps was the easy part, and it’s pretty self-explanatory. The trick is getting it to roll neatly without the tortilla splitting and spilling out the filling. I thought that it helped to have paper wraps that hold it together and I fancied it up with baker’s twine.

Top it off with yummy sliced avocados! Did you know that just one ounce of fresh Avocados from Mexico has 50 calories and can enhance your recipes with a creamy, delicious texture? With nearly 20 vitamins and minerals packed within it’s contents, avocados are a smart choice to keep yourself healthy.

One of these tools is a spatula for batters (hence the bat) and the other is a tool for cutting and slicing avocados. It really cuts though like butter!! I’m loving this tool for avocado cutting :)

If there’s anything I really love, it’s an easy weeknight dinner that’s a crowd pleaser for the whole family. This week, after returning home from a long day, the last thing I felt like doing was making something elaborate. I thought this would make the perfect opportunity to break out my Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips and make some fun baskets with a side of Zesty Chili Sauce.

One of the things I noticed when I visited my local Sam’s Club to purchase my Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips was a set of these adorable red baskets. I thought they would be fun to serve up my Chicken Strips with Zesty Chili Sauce. I used some coffee filters to line it, and it worked perfectly – I love that it made a frilly edge!

So what’s this Zesty Chili Sauce all about? It’s super-simple and I made it to pair next to the cajun mustard that I made as well. All it is made of is sour cream mixed with Tone’s Chili Powder.
