Ok guys, school is starting in a couple of weeks and we’re already so busy!  My two boys started football at the beginning of August so our nights of having dinner together are over.  I like easy meals that don’t take long to cook because they are STARVING when they get home (me too)!  I love this 30 Minute Mexican Sausage Casserole so I’m adding it back in my menu this month.  It’s perfect because it takes no time at all and it uses ingredients I usually already have in my kitchen.  I can have it on the table and my family eating in less than 30 minutes.  My family loves Mexican food so it’s a plus.

My family was gone for most of July and it was pretty hectic.  We went to Cooperstown, NY for a baseball tournament, then vacation, then one son went to camp and then a long weekend in Boston.  We have been eating out a lot and feel really blah!  My husband and I have put us on a 30 day no eating out challenge to get back to eating better and saving some money.

One of my favorite parts about this Mexican Casserole is that it includes ingredients that I (and probably you) already have in the pantry.  My secret ingredient is Eckrich Smoked Sausage.  It’s already cooked so you can just throw it in. Eckrich is made with a signature blend of spices for a rich, flavorful taste. It’s so versatile I can use it for any meal occasion. I usually keep a few packages in my freezer. It’s nice to have them on hand when I need a quick meal, so I can run my kids to practice and help with homework.  You can have it with breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
