Hearty Meals To Keep Away The Chill (NAPSA) - What could be more comforting than arriving home on a crisp evening to a hot, hearty meal? On those chilly evenings, potatoes have always been a favorite. A new cookbook, "A Taste of Idaho," offers a variety of creative recipes that showcase the versatility of potatoes from breakfast dishes and tasty scones to main course dinners.

The delicious Southwestern Skillet Supper is filled with ground beef, onions, tomatoes, baked beans and corn, then topped with Idahoan Complete mashed potatoes. Rich in protein and carbohydrates, the meal provides a great one-two punch to combat chilly weather. Moist and flaky Potato Buttermilk Biscuits serve as the skillet supper's perfect companion.


  • 1 packet Idahoan Complete potato flakes with seasoning pouch
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound ground beef or turkey
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 16-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 16-ounce can baked beans
  • 1 11-ounce can corn, drained
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro


Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and onion and cook until brown, stirring occasionally. Stir in chili powder and salt; cook 1 minute longer.
