Dinner in a Dish Theme: Mexican Luncheon

As promised, I will continue my Dinner in a Dish theme by posting recipes from an old pamphlet produced by the Oklahoma Natural Gas Company in the 1950's. It was originally printed in an attempt to encourage energy conservation in cooking as well as saving money in the family budget. These budgeting attempts are as equally important today as they were in the 50's!

Mexican Luncheon

1 lb. hot bulk pork sausage
1 C chopped onion
1 C chopped green pepper
2 C uncooked macaroni; cooked and drained
1/2 C mil1 C sour cream
1 can (16 oz.) whole tomatoes, drained and chopped (I think a can of the diced would be quicker)
1 TBSP chili powder
1 tsp salt
About 1/3 C shredded cheddar or American cheese

Saute' sausage, onion and green pepper in a skillet until sausage is done; drain well. Combine sausage mixture and remaining ingredients except cheese. Spoon mixture into a lightly-greased 2-qt casserole; sprinkle with cheese. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly. Makes 6 servings.

I will be at these swaps today:



  1. Gotta love dinner in a dish! Sounds yummy!

  2. This sounds simple and tasty and my mother probably made this for me in the 60's. I will have to give it a try. Thanks
