This is one of those straightforward, inexpensive, one-pan meals that everybody loves and anybody can throw together. Use what you have in your fridge: ground turkey, if that's what you like, canned beans you have in the pantry, and feel free to skip the corn if you haven't got any. It makes a mildly spicy meal that is pleasantly smoky and tangy but not overly complicated.
Vegetables, smoky-sweet from the grill and zingy with lime juice, transform simple cheesy tortillas -- comfortingly familiar to children -- into something sublime. Other fresh, seasonal, vegetables, such as eggplant or fennel, would make a lovely addition to the line-up here. And do try to hunt down the chipotle peppers, which add their own delicious hit of smokiness: they're available canned, in the Mexican foods aisle, and you can puree the entire can and store it in a jar in the refrigerator for instant flavor-boosting. (But if your kids are spice-shy, stick with the paprika.)

Rotisserie chicken makes a great last minute fall-back dinner just by itself. But it also helps me make otherwise time consuming meals a snap, like this Chicken Tortilla Pie. Because the chicken is already cooked, it eliminates a (huge) step, so putting together a great dinner is merely a few minutes of assembling ingredients, rather than hours of prep and cooking time. This recipe also utilizes the underappreciated dark thigh and leg meat, so you can use the breast meat for something else.
