Your family's summer activities are soon to be replaced by back-to-school shopping, soccer practice, and car pools. While you've still got some breathing room, cook and freeze several batches of Savory Meat Base to get a jump-start on weeknight meals. Dolores Long of Abingdon, Virginia, who shared this recipe with us, says she raised all four of her children on it. The spaghetti she makes with it always brings them home for a visit.

Weeknight Meals:
1. Green Chile Enchiladas
