This recipe is one I created, substituting chicken for beef and omitting the frying, when our son grew fond of a fast-food restaurant's "junior burritos". They've been a big hit with our whole family ever since! —Nancy Coates, Oro Valley, Arizona

This dip is always a big hit with men—maybe because of the hearty blend of flavors. It stands up great as a leftover besides...if there's any left over. I was raised on a Montana ranch, and my grandmother taught me to cook when I was 10 years old. My husband and I (we have one married daughter) are retired now. To stay active, I bowl and do crafts. My collection of cookbooks keeps right on growing, too—I started it more than 50 years ago.

Among the 50 fruit trees on our place are five cherry trees—and I like to use every bit of fruit that doesn't get eaten right off of them! We enjoy salsa on a variety of dishes, especially leftovers (it really sparks them up) and eggs. I prefer this salsa most with turkey. We have three boys—8,6 and 4—and a daughter who's 2. They keep me busy, since they're hungry all day! In the kitchen, I'm always trying new things. It's rare for me to follow a recipe exactly. So, when something turns out good, my husband will a smile and say, "Do you think you'll be able to make it the same way next time?"

Hot Cheese Dip

This recipe started at school—I'm a teacher, and when a colleague brought Hot Cheese Dip to our regular staff potluck, I immediately gave it an A+. Cooking, baking and collecting recipe books are among my favorite hobbies. Best of all, though, I enjoy time with my husband and our daughter.

As a cook for a commercial salmon fishing crew, I found this recipe to be a wonderful variation in the use of salmon. It's terrific as an addition to a festive Mexican meal or as a delicate prelude to a steak dinner.
