What are some good but easy recipes I can make for a pot luck?

I am 18 years old and I am going to be attending a pot luck dinner. I am not a really good cook, and I wondering if there are any really good but easy recipes I could make for this? The people attending the party will be around my age as well, so it doesn’t have to be super fancy. It is a really laid back dinner.

    Beef Enchiladas II
    Simple and quick beef enchiladas. Ground beef and onion are wrapped in flour tortillas, topped with Cheddar cheese and black olives, then baked. This is also great with leftover chicken, shredded beef or turkey. Serve with a green salad or beans and rice.”

    1 pound lean ground beef
    1 small onion, chopped
    1 (1.5 ounce) package dry enchilada sauce mix
    10 (10 inch) flour tortillas

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium skillet over medium high heat, cook the ground beef and onion until beef is evenly browned and onion is tender.
    Prepare the enchilada sauce according to package directions. Pour 1/4 cup of the sauce into the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish.
    On each flour tortilla, place an equal portion of the ground beef mixture and about 1 ounce of Cheddar cheese, reserving at least 1/2 cup of cheese. Then tightly roll the tortillas and place seam side down in the baking dish.
    Pour the remaining sauce over the top of the enchiladas and sprinkle with the remaining cheese and olives.
    Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbly and cheese is thoroughly melted.

    Meanwhile, boil tomatillos and chopped onion in water to cover for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool. Once cooled, puree with half of the cilantro until smooth.
    Fry tortillas individually in a small amount of hot oil until soft.
    Mix potatoes together with pinto beans, 1/2 cheese, and 1/2 cilantro. Fill tortillas with potato mixture, and roll up. Place seam side down in an oiled 9×13 inch baking dish. Spoon tomatillo sauce over enchiladas, and spread remaining cheese over sauce. Bake for 20 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

    For beginner cooks or cooks with lack of confidence consider these options:

    Choose your favorite local bakery not supermarket and buy a cake. Choose something everyone will like, fitting your budget, and not too fancy if someone asks for the recipe since you are passing it off as your own.
    Go to the dollar store and pick up a round metal tray with some design on it or plain if that is all they have. Purchase a doily that will be placed on tray.
    Go to the market and get some fresh fruit or berries.
    Take it all home.
    Place the doily on the tray, the cake in the middle, and cut up fruit or berries around the cake. Be sure to fill the sides edge to edge (cake to edge of tray or platter.)

    Its a huge success and everyone will think you have great talents in the kitchen. For that matter you can use the same idea and bake your own cake from a cake mix. Follow directions on box precisely and the cake should be great. Follow my guidance on everything else.

    You can also let flower petals try out and put it around the cake to look pretty instead of fruit. I like the fruit because of the vast array of colors and you can eat it too.

    Heya. I’ll give you a few ideas, ranging from pretty simple to looks-fancy-but-is-easy-to-make.

    This is extremely easy and it tastes good. Then again, not sure how proud you’ll be to serve beans’n’weeners to your peers. Get two large cans of pork and beans (can be bought in the soup aisle of your grocery store); add a pack of beef or turkey hot dogs cut into 1/2 inch slices. It’s pretty tasty, super cheap, and nothing’s easier, but it’s not very fancy.

    Something else you could do is cut pieces of bread into two circles; crumble the rest. Spread some butter and garlic on it and bake them until crispy. Boil some rigatoni pasta, drain it when done, and mix a meaty sauce directly into the pasta. Then spoon small amounts of the pasta onto the baked bread and sprinkle with garlic and rosemary.

    Strawberry pretzel salad is also good, but it’s a dessert. Using a casserole dish or baking pan, bake some already-made prezel in a mixture of a little sugar, and butter; then cool and cover with cream cheese. Make some strawberry jello and fill it with strawberries, then pour it over the mixture so that it’s about 1 – 1 1/2 inches thick and cover it with whipped cream. It’s delicious. 🙂

    You could also try something that looks and tastes great… Boil some rice in chicken flavoring and add sauteed carrots, mushrooms, snow peas, and red pepper. Add the vegetables to it when the rice is done and mix them in; let it steam cook. It has tons of flavor and it looks good. 🙂

    Good luck!
