Fajitas are my favorite dish when I'm at a Mexican restaurant, so I decided to try making them at home. They turned out so well that I served them the next time my husband's parents came to visit. Everyone said they were delicious!
“This recipe has been a family favorite for many years. It’s great served with Spanish rice and refried beans. Cilantro may be added to the salsa, if desired.” —Avanell Hewitt, North Richland Hills, Texas
This recipe proved to be a winner, not only when wrapped in lettuce, but also when served as a sandwich, dip or salad with tortilla chips. It is so easy to make it ahead, chill and take for a picnic or potluck. —June Barrus, Springville, Utah
Whether you're in the stadium parking lot or on your patio, these southwestern-style burgers are great on the grill. Sometimes I make six patties rather than eight out of the ingredients because I like my burgers bigger and better! —Robert Hodges, San Diego, California
This dish is a great way to use up leftover turkey from Thanksgiving or Christmas. This hearty Mexican-style casserole is chock-full of popular south-of-the-border ingredients including corn chips, salsa, Monterey Jack cheese and refried beans. It's a guaranteed family-pleaser.—Trudie Hagen, Roggen, Colorado
In her kitchen in Ponca City, Oklahoma, LaDonna Reed spreads chicken breasts with a creamy filling, rolls them up, wraps them in bacon and bakes them. For a spicier version, she suggests that you try using sliced jalapeno peppers instead of green chilies.
This recipe is simple enough for a young cook—such as my 12-year-old daughter—but it'll satisfy the heartiest appetites. And Mexican Lasagna looks as great as it tastes. This south-of-the-border-style casserole is a family favorite in our Southern home—give it a try!
