This layered Southwestern meal just can't be beat. It gets its spicy flavor from green chilies, chili powder and cumin. Using a slow cooker liner inside of the cooker makes it easier to lift and remove the meal so it can be cut into individual wedges.—Judy Ragsdale, Queen City, Texas
From Spearville, Kansas, Pat Habiger shares her pretty stuffed peppers. "When green, red or yellow bell peppers are plentiful, they create a colorful container for this spicy taco mixture that's ready in record time," she promises.
"This casserole has so much zesty Mexican flavor that my husband doesn't even realize it's a low-fat dish," says Shirley Meyer of Alden, Minnesota. "With its creamy sauce made from soup and cheeses, it tastes like a calorie-laden meal when it's not."
Before putting in the slow cooker, trim the fat from the roast to avoid greasy gravy. If your roast weighs 3 or more pounds, cut it in half to ensure even cooking. Margaret Thiel - Levittown, Pennsylvania
These creamy enchiladas are likely to be as popular at your house as they are at Kaylin DeVries' home. "I have many requests for this recipe," relates the Magna, Utah reader. "For weddings, I place the recipe in a nice casserole dish to give as a gift."
We've always liked stuffed peppers, but everyone is pleasantly surprised at this mildly spicy version. For convenience, you can assemble these pretty peppers ahead of time and bake them later.

Honey and pineapple add a sweet twist to these fajitas that my family loves. I like to serve them with coleslaw and baked or fried potatoes. —Raymonde Bourgeois, Swastika, Ontario
