I've been extra busy since our baby daughter was born a few months ago. That's why this easy-as-pie main dish is filed at the front of my recipe box! My husband really likes its Western flavors of beef, corn and wheat…especially since we raise the last two ingredients here on our family farm! —Deb Poitz, Fort Morgan, Colorado

Although you can serve this as a side dish, it's filling enough to make a main course. Small gatherings are good occasions for my stuffed potatoes—they're so easy to throw together. Our 10-acre farm outside Toronto is nowhere near to the Southwest, of course. I love Mexican food, though, and this makes a nice alternative to tacos. I like its zesty taste, too.

We've lived in Arizona for decades, so Mexican-style cooking has become the same as "Arizona-style cooking" for us. Nothing tastes better than chili-spiced pork with tortillas.

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

My husband and I are beef eaters, and this dish is one we like for entertaining family and friends-it's easy to prepare and looks and tastes great. A simple marinade tenderizes the steak for grilling, and colored peppers charred alongside add spicy, smoky flavors and bright colors. It's a very pretty dish.

After enjoying "Navajo tacos" in a restaurant in Window Rock, Arizona, I went home and came up with this recipe. Our daughter's school roommate, a Navajo Indian, helped my improve the fry bread. I've served this often-both at home and on the ranch where I work-and everyone loves it!
