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

For a great side for any main dish, try this great rice dish. The bacon drippings add another layer of flavor and make the rice delectable.—Maria Goclan, Katy, Texas

This recipe has been in our family for a long time, but I'm not sure where it originated. Though it has a Southwestern flair, we love it here in Missouri.

Looking for an accompaniment to Mexican food or barbecued chicken? This spicy rice fits the bill (the sour cream is handy for cooling your palate!). When I'm cooking, I head for my spice cupboard often - we like our food zesty!

My mother made this casserole when I was growing up, so I know the recipe is an old favorite with many folks. After I married, I made sure this dish was regular fare at our house. It's one of those versatile "go-with-anything" dishes my family loves!"

"MY AUNT baked her beans in a old earthenware crock in the wood stove. She'd stir them periodically with a big wooden spoon. Each time she opened the oven door, the aroma seemed richer and richer!"

We love this dish at our house, and whenever I take it to a potluck, it disappears just as quickly as it does at home. This pleasing recipe was given to me by my sister-in-law from Louisiana. I've made some changes in the ingredients, but the snappy Cajun flavor is still there. It's easy to increase for any number of guests.

With baked beans, corn and green pepper, these juicy drumsticks are a meal by themselves. But I like to serve them with a green salad and fresh bread.

My family and friends love this variation of plain fried potatoes because they add some "zing" to our breakfast. And for even more Southwestern flair, we top ours with my homemade salsa.
