In Queen Creek, Arizona, all eyes are on Jolene Young’s tasty main-dish salad when she brings it in. Topped with creepy peepers, it’s packed with beef, cheese, tomato and satisfying taco flavor to satisfy a crowd.
I got this recipe from a friend years ago and still make these cheesy sandwiches regularly. I serve them for dinner along with a steaming bowl of soup or fresh green salad. Any leftovers taste even better the next day for lunch. A helpful hint: Plain refrigerated biscuits seal together better than buttermilk types. —Jan Schmid
One year, my daughter decided to celebrate her July birthday with a patriotic theme. This colorful and refreshing salad was the main dish on the menu. The kids gobbled it up! —Glenda Jarboe, Oroville, California
"Our family was pleasantly surprised by this delightful dish that calls for leftover taco fixings," relates Bonnie King of Lansing, Michigan. "Some of us enjoyed it even more than the original tacos! It's easy to put together and tasty enough to serve to company."
Served as the main dish at our family reunion buffet, this flavorful layered taco-style dish is a crowd-pleaser. Folks are pleasantly surprised to find a rice layer, and everyone enjoys the creamy cheese sauce.
This chili is perfect on game nights. All the ingredients go right into the chips bag – no dishes to wash. While the chili simmers, get in a round of Texas hold'em. —Beverly Matthews, Pasco, Washington
