Quick Supper Casserole

There are evenings where the day does not want to end but supper still needs to find it’s way to the table. Working both outside the home and from home has its advantage and days with disadvantages.
Last week I had a busy disadvantage day. Worked outside till 4 pm and then about 3 hours of work to do once I arrived. Supper turned into a variation of a recipe I found online a few days before.
Quick Supper Casserole
1 lb browned ground beef
1 envelope spicy taco seasonings
1 can cream of celery soup  – 2 cans if you want it saucy
1 – 2 cups frozen vegetables – I use mixed vegetables but corn or peas will work if that is your preference
1 small bag tater tots or potato pancakes or something similar
2 cups shredded cheese
Preheat oven to 350
Brown ground beef with taco seasonings. Keep cooking until liquid is cooked off.
Spread the beef in the bottom of a 2-quart casserole dish
Cover evenly with frozen vegetables
Cover with the cream of celery soup. Do not dilute the soup. Using a spatula to spread the soup over the vegetables and beef.
Finally, place a layer of tater tots to cover the top of the casserole
Bake uncovered in a 350 over for about 50 minutes or until tots are crispy.
Once removed from the oven, cover with shredded cheese and serve.
It worked out very well and is on my list of repeat recipes for rush nights. It only took about 10 minutes to get ready to put in the oven. Oh, and there were no leftovers πŸ™  Might try doubling the recipe next time, for evening snacking πŸ™‚
If you try it, please let me know what you think.
