I found this recipe in a cookbook left to me by my mother. Over the past 20 years, it's been a big hit with my family, especially with those who love kidney beans. Using English muffins instead of hamburger buns is a nice change. - Mauvereen Cannady, Portage, Wisconsin
I received this recipe from my sister-in-law and use it all the time. The addition of pepperoni and cinnamon makes it extra special. My family says it's the best spaghetti sauce ever! —Wendy Prevost, Cody, Wyoming
I don't believe my mom ever used a recipe for her tamale pie, but I came up with this version that tastes very much like the one she used to make. It's been popular at our church gatherings and faculty luncheons...and my kids love it!

I serve this dish as an appetizer and often add whatever ingredients I have handy, such as mushrooms or sun-dried tomatoes. Whether I serve it “as is” or jazz it up, it’s always delicious. —Todd Noon, Galloway, New Jersey
This traditional lasagna is a real crowd-pleaser. With ground beef, Italian sausage, a from-scratch tomato sauce and a rich cheese sauce, it's hearty and delicious. I get lots of compliments when I put together and share this wonderful dish.—Donna Patterson, Davenport, Iowa
Though still debated, Tucson is generally credited as the original home of the chimichanga (fried "burro", as we call them, stuffed with meat, onions and chilies). I've combined several recipes into this one, and it's fairly authentic. —Laura Towns, Glendale, Arizona
This hearty, old-fashioned spaghetti sauce will satisfy even the largest appetite. It may look like a lot of work, but it goes together fast and smells so good as it cooks.
