    For me that would be arepas ,, and flour tortillas. The flour tortillas are amazing with fried eggs, pork green chile, or red hamburger chile, with pintos and some jalapenos. The arepas are great stuffed with cheese,

    Pizza. My wife likes New York style pizza with a really thin crust. I managed to dig up a recipe (for crackers!) that makes a micro-thin crust which she loves. Pizza isn't quick -- what with the dough rising, and pre-baking the crust so it doesn't get soggy -- but it's so easy that we don't order out for it any more.

    Bean tostadas. Refried beans, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, and hot sauce. They're really easy to make at home.

    Shepherd's Pie! Not my pic, but pretty much the way I make it. Hamburger, peas, carrots, and sweet corn topped with mashed potatoes browned just enough :D

    This one is kind of time consuming, but easy enough that even I can do it, and very good fall/winter comfort food.

    Basically it comes down to boiling meatballs in beef broth, then boiling cut up potatoes in that same broth and using some of that broth when you mash the taters, and simmer down the rest to make gravy (there will be enough fat from the meatballs and starch from the potatoes that you won't need much flour or corn starch to thicken it. The mashed potatoes get a yummy rich beef flavour, and you have gravy to pour on everything.

    It just takes a bit of time to mix up the meat mixture and roll out all the meatballs, then to boil first the meatballs and then the potatoes.

    This thread is dangerous! It could inspire me to spend all my time in the kitchen. I'd have to categorize my lists of what I like to make by meal segment and meal time. Gosh, I'm drooling!

    Where's the cheese?
    I always put a layer of velveta cheese between the meat and potatos, and on top of course too!

    My cousin gave me this recipe years ago. It includes cheese. It's a great quick and easy go to dish that's so yummy.

    Stay close to me and you'll never worry about getting skinny. :)

    Now should I suggest some dessert recipes?
