These pork chops make a quick company dish. Our family enjoys them on the grill, as the summer weather in our part of the country is hot and muggy. In the wintertime, they're wonderful prepared in the broiler. —Blanche Babinski, Minto, North Dakota

Though still debated, Tucson is generally credited as the original home of the chimichanga (fried "burro", as we call them, stuffed with meat, onions and chilies). I've combined several recipes into this one, and it's fairly authentic. —Laura Towns, Glendale, Arizona

Spiedis

Spiedis

This is our favorite cookout dish, and it's very good served with a salad. This recipe originated here in my hometown in the 1930's. Our meat preference for speidis is venison, but we use others when it's not available.

This family favorite can be served for all occasions-dinner, a quick lunch, a hearty snack or an unusual appetizer.

My husband and I are beef eaters, and this dish is one we like for entertaining family and friends-it's easy to prepare and looks and tastes great. A simple marinade tenderizes the steak for grilling, and colored peppers charred alongside add spicy, smoky flavors and bright colors. It's a very pretty dish.

Stir-Fried Chicken Fajitas

Stir-Fried Chicken Fajitas

I developed this recipe one evening when I was hungry for fajitas but didn't want to light the charcoal grill! That makes the preparation a little different from traditional chicken fajitas...but our family likes these better.

Barbecued Salmon

My husband and I got this recipe from a chef in 1982...and we've never served salmon any other way since then! Everyone loves the mild-tasting marinade, and out here in Washington friends are always asking me for the recipe.

Barbecued Lamb Kabobs

This is a dowry recipe I brought with me from western Pennsylvania. To fully enjoy this dish, just serve it as a snack or appetizer with some hot bread and a beverage. It's nice to serve at parties, and I like it as a late-night snack, too! It can be made the day before, and it also freezes well.
