We have a large sack of potatos

Cans of Whole peeled Tomatoes, Baked Beans, Sliced Carrots, French Style Green Beans, Creamed Corn, Tomato Sauce, Black Olives

And then we have Pinto and White beans, but I think they need to be cooked, as they are hard, I don't deal with them much except in a crockpot.

Mexican Skillet

Cook 6 ounces wide noodles as package directs. Meanwhile, brown 1 pound hamburger in a 12 inch skillet. Add 1 envelope taco seasoning mix and 1/2 water. When this mixture is boiling, add 1 can corn kernels, drained and 1 cup commercial red salsa. Allow to simmer over low heat while noodles finish cooking. When noodles are cooked, drain, then stir into meat mixture. Top with grated cheddar cheese to taste. Cover until cheese melts, then serve. Makes 4 to 6 servings depending on the ages of any children. This is good fresh, but is even better when warmed up the next day and particularly wonderful when eaten for breakfast.

what about chili?

i guess it depends on your spices, but how about spicing the meat middle eastern style, form around a fat skewer or stick and make shish kebab?

If you have any bell peppers and onions, Spanish Rice would be good.

Thanks everyone! I ended up combining the hamburger meat with the noodles, adding some mild salsa, half a can of corn, taco seasoning, and lots of cheese, and made a casserole! I call it a "Fiesta Fanfair"!

That sounds great! I did something similar using macaroni and canned tomatoes (in addition to the salsa). I didn't have a cute name for mine though!
