A taco shell makes a good holder for a hot dog dressed up with a tasty combination of baked beans and cheese. "When our children were young, they asked for this meal at least once a week," remembers Kat Thompson of Prineville, Oregon.
"Whether I'm fixing cod fillets or my husband's catch of the day, this batter makes the fish fry up golden and crispy," says Nancy Johnson, field editor from Connersville, Indiana. "Club soda gives it a different twist...and the sweet and zippy sauce complements the fish nicely."
From Lake Havasu City, Arizona, Dawn Hart shares an easy method for dressing up chicken. She rolls strips in a quick coating made with potato flakes and bread crumbs, then cooks them for a couple minutes in a skillet.
"This recipe—from a seafood cookbook my husband bought me before we were married—is a longtime favorite," writes Robin Guth of Endicott, New York. "I have literally won out the page it's printed on." The citrus-flavored fillets are broiled to a golden brown...then topped with toasted sesame seeds for a fun crunch.
"My girls like these tortilla roll-ups very much - they'll ask for them practically every week!" says Sue Seymour of Valatie, New York. Tender chicken combines with canned corn and salsa for a fast-to-fix main dish.
Both the seafood and citrus lovers in your home will request this entree time and again. Not only are the orange roughy fillets tender and the sauce delicious, but the dish is ready in moments. I haven't found anyone who didn't think it was wonderful!

An envelope of taco seasoning gives Mexican flair to Debbie's meat mixture in this tasty taco dinner. It has such a different flavor from the other variations that your family will never realize it's made from the same sauce.
"When I need a quick and easy dinner, I make these satisfying pizzas that capture the flavor of Mexico," relates Katherine Jones, Renton, Washington. "Piled high with zesty ingredients, the tortillas are a snap to prepare and taste great."
"Nestled in a skillet with colorful nutritious carrots and spinach, this catfish fillet comes out perfectly moist," reports Sharon McComas of Kansas City, Missouri. "This skillet supper is no more trouble than heating a frozen dinner—and it tastes so much better!"
