We have two children who keep us busy, so I love meals I can just pull out of the freezer. The burritos are wrapped individually so it's easy to take out only the number you need. I serve them with canned refried beans and Spanish rice from a boxed mix. —Jennifer Shafer, Durham, North Carolina.
Meet the Cook: Like most farmers, my husband loves chili. And with all of the vegetables, cheese and meat in it, this quick dish makes a real meal-in-one. I serve it frequently in fall and winter.
I began cooking young. My mom taught me a lot...so did years of 4-H!
My husband and I have a dairy farm, and we also make maple syrup. I'm the mother of two small boys. They don't care for the olives in this recipe - but the rest they eat right up!

I enjoy preparing one-dish dinners, and this is one of my favorites because it's so easy and attractive. Served with tortilla chips or taco shells, it's a fun meal for everyone. And because it's so festive looking, I put the skillet right on the table when we have company.
"I received the recipe for this hearty ground beef and cabbage casserole from a teacher at the preschool where I work," notes Judy Thorn of Mars, Pennsylvania. "It's a nutritious and economical meal for busy families."
After my brothers' football games when we were kids, we would all descend on a local restaurant for their wonderful Southwestern stuffed soapaipillas. This recipe takes me back to that delicious childhood memory. Even my Canadian husband raves about these! —Lara Pennell
