Taco salad or chicken ranch taco salad? Both are amazing!

I bring them every year for our annual employee carry-in and there is never any left!

@kitkat2014:  I think pulled pork is pretty simple? Place pork shoulder (super cheap) in crockpot with rub. Cook. Shred. Stir in sauce. Put back in crockpot on ‘warm’!

Pulled pork or chili. Both are super easy in a crock pot.

I second meatballs! You could also bring some rolls to make meatball sandwiches 🙂

Pulled pork is super cheap.  Put it in the crock pot.  Pour 12 oz Barq’s rootbeer (REGULAR NOT DIET!!!) over the pork.  Cook on low overnight.  In the morning drain the rootbeer, shred with a fork, and served with BBQ sauce and buns/rolls (people will also eat the pork even without rolls if your budget is that tight.)

I always do chicken and dumplings. Throw some chicken breasts (thawed) in a crock pot with a large can of cream of chicken soup. About 30-45 minutes before serving you can piece up the refrigerated biscuit dough in nickel-quarter sized pieces.

Everyone in my family LOVES this and it’s hearty on a cold day. The dough does a great dumpling option.

If the soup doesnt cover the chicken breasts just put some milk or water in too. You could even add some veg if you wanted!

@kitkat2014:  My supervisor brought a stoffers lasagna once and everyone raved about her “homemade dish”! She brought it every potluck after that. Lol. It’s cheap, easy and feeds several so that is my suggestion.

I take soup sometimes and it’s always a hit at lunch. I use either  a crockpot or a large thermos and take mugs in which to serve the soup.
