Romping in the national forest amid tall ponderosa pines around our home gives my husband and our two little boys big appetites. They like this savory stew. Because I'm a busy firefighter, I often make it ahead and serve it when I need a meal in a hurry. -Linda Russell, Forest Lakes, Arizona

Meet the Cook: Green chilies are a big favorite here in the Southwest - my family likes anything with them in it. Now that we are "empty nesters" (two married children and two grandchildren), my husband knows that I'm going to spring at least one new recipe on him each week. He's always brave! -Pat Henderson, Deer Park, Texas

Meet the Cook: Even before it got cold outside last fall, my husband had asked me to make this stew twice. In fact, here at home, our name for it is "Tom's Favorite Stew". We're the parents of two children - a 9-year-old boy and 8-year-old girl. -Linda Schwarz, Bertrand, Nebraska

This recipe can be altered to fit any taste by adjusting how spicy and saucy you make it. On occasion, I like using ground turkey in place of the beef-or adding leftover spaghetti sauce instead of the tomato paste.

My husband is a pastor, so I fix meals for large groups often. This one is a favorite and a nice change from the usual beef enchiladas.

Jalapeno peppers are quite abundant in this area of the country, and there are numerous ranches here that raise lambs. People seem to be eating food that's a little hotter nowadays, so I think this recipe will appeal to them.
