Betty Crocker Kitchen Tips: You can use Old El Paso salsa in place of the picante sauce in this recipe.

There's no need to peel garlic cloves when you use a garlic press. Simply pop the clove, skin and all, into the press, then squeeze. The garlic flesh will be forced through the mesh, while the skin stays in the press.

Frozen potato nuggets also come in onion flavor and in mini-size nuggets. Try one of these to compliment this casserole.

I have a friend that doesn't cook either. She tells people "OH I cook....I cook McDonalds, Applebees, Sonic, etc." cracks me up.
I WISH I didn't have to cook and come up with new recipes all the time. But I am afraid my family would freak out if there wasn't something on the table nightly. If it were up to me...I wouldn't cook cause I honestly don't enjoy it.
