Mother used to fix this wonderful, easy dish when we had company. She was from a family of fantastic Cajun cooks, so our food was always well-seasoned. In Louisiana, rice is part of many meals. The cheese sauce sets these stuffed peppers apart from any others I've tried. —Lisa Easley, Longview, Texas

For a nice alternative to beef and bean burritos, I use this recipe, which I discovered several years back. If I fix the chicken mixture the night before, the next day's dinner is a snap. My 14-year-old gives these yummy burritos an enthusiastic "thumbs up"! -Suzanne Adams, Laguna Niguel, California

A good friend of mine shared this delicious recipe with me. When my family gets tired of the same old spaghetti, I like to serve this dish for a change! It provides a flavorful alternative to the Italian version. It's also a great dish when you don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.—Mary Detweiler, Middlefield, Ohio

This recipe is one of my husband Dwayne's favorite, especially during cooler weather. The topping is crunchy, and the chili has just enough spice to warm you up inside in even the coldest weather! I add a simple side salad to complete the meal.—Heather Thurmeier, Pense, Saskatchewan

Meet the Cook: I am a self-taught cook whose family had to eat a lot of "mistakes" till I got the right taste! I changed the meat and flavoring many times in this one-dish meal, for example. Now, it's a favorite. I just served it to 24 people at a party. My husband and I have seven grown children and 10 grandchildren. -Joy Rackham, Chimacum, Washington
