Ground beef is an economical and delicious option for families, especially with beef prices rising. This easy potato and ground beef casserole recipe has just five ingredients and is super simple to make. It's creamy, cheesy and filling, and can easily be frozen to eat later.

You could add chopped vegetables to the casserole like onion, red or green bell pepper or even jalapenos for a spicy kick. Simply chop and add them to the skillet when cooking the meat.

You could use cream of chicken soup, or another "cream of" soup.
Hi, I am responding to the question about using canned cream soups. For both the cream of mushroom and cheese soup, you can make a home made base and add the mushrooms and cheese. This consists of butter, flour and heavy cream (milk). I use real butter and heavy cream to give my soups a rich flavor. However, for those who have diet restrictions or prefer low fat recipes, you will use the butter and milk of your choice. Google homemade condensed cream soups if you need a recipe.
