Here’s one of my favorite all-in-one meals that uses items I typically have in the pantry. Green chilies give it just a little bite, but it’s easy to swap in a spicier can of tomatoes if you want to turn up the heat. —Jan Conklin, Stevensville, MT

"I thought it was a great recipe with the possible exception of too much cheese. I cut it back to 1/2 cup of cheese and sprinkled it on top instead of mixing it in."

"Delicious. My kids even liked it. We did regular diced tomatoes and left off the tortilla chips, and it was outstanding. Also used ground turkey."
