"When my children visited their aunt, she served these colorful fajitas," writes Marlene Mohr from Cincinnati, Ohio. "They were so impressed, they brought the recipe home to me. It's a great way for them to eat vegetables.
"I adjusted this favorite casserole for microwave use in the interest of speed and to save heating up the ovenwe live in the Southwest," explains Joyce Marten of Cottonwood, Arizona. "I've taken it to friends who have been in the midst of remodeling and always get a request for the recipe."
Anyone living in or visiting the Southwest knows green chilies are a staple. I grew up on this delicacy and thought everyone must know how delicious it is. It seems to be even more popular now in this area.
After enjoying "Navajo tacos" in a restaurant in Window Rock, Arizona, I went home and came up with this recipe. Our daughter's school roommate, a Navajo Indian, helped my improve the fry bread. I've served this often-both at home and on the ranch where I work-and everyone loves it!
Summer calls for a delicious change of pace from ordinary pizza. This colorful version puts fresh vegetables, cheese and a savory meat sauce on top of a crispy cornmeal crust. You will have a hard time eating just one slice!

Our whole family loves foods spiced with picante sauce, so I developed this recipe! This dish is very quick and easy to make, and it also reheats well. Sometimes I add cooked, sliced potatoes to the stew for a little variety, too.
The best compliment a cook can receive is to be asked for the recipe of a dish she's just served. That's happened almost every time I've made these pork chops for friends. The sauce gives them a great barbecue flavor.
