Recipes Sought

While we are in the cooking mode, I am seeking good recipes to make for a family going through a bit of a hard time right now. Friends are bringing them meals a few times each week, and they are people who like pretty basic, plain food. Last time I made grilled chicken breasts, white rice, and steamed carrots and broccoli. Nothing with strong spices or unusual sauces.

Now I am surfing for other good ideas (it also has to transport and reheat well) ... thought I would see if anyone out there had good recommendations???

I always send taco soup. If you can open a can, you can make it and it can be reheated several times and paired with different salads, breads, etc. It's no spicier than the taco seasoning that you use. I think the recipe is in the Peace Lutheran cookbook.

I also like the Byerly's Chicken and Wild Rice soup, also in that cookbook.

Soups you can deliver frozen and there's no mess or fuss for prep or cleanup.

Dang, I was going to say taco soup. I've made a big batch of this chicken chili before and took 1/2 to another family. It freezes well. Looks like I used half and half in this recipe but sometimes I don't put it in at all. Also, I usually use canned beans:
