I guess I'm one of those women "who have moved from the country in body but not in heart"! Although I'm an attorney in a large city, my parents are ranchers. And, since they once grew rice, that's a staple of my cooking. Because of my busy schedule, I like dishes like this that can be easily reheated throughout the week. This was actually a soup recipe when I first found it. I needed a side dish, however, so I simply reduced the amount of water.

Since my husband's a Navy meteorologist, we've sampled food all over the world. I adapted this recipe from one I was given while we were stationed on the Aleutian Islands. Fresh meat was difficult to obtain in that part of Alaska, so I learned to make many meals featuring grains and legumes instead! We're looking forward to retiring soon to a small farm in central Maine. All three of our children were 4-H leader for 9 years.

The bacon adds tremendous flavor to this spicy dish. I learned this tip from a friend while living in New Mexico. It's great served with any Mexican meal, or as a side dish with hamburgers or chicken.

Chilies are a "must" where I live. I find they almost always improve a recipe that uses cheese. Sometimes I make this into a main dish by adding shredded cooked chicken after the chili layer. It really tastes good! —Irene Martin, Portales, New Mexico
