Much of our summer menu is done on the grill, and peppers and avocados are favorites in my family. That led me to create this recipe to help spice up our barbecued entrees. I have also served it as an appetizer or thin wedges of bread and as a topping for easy country-style dishes like chicken and rice pilaf. With our 14-year-old daughter, we live on 4 wooded acres on Mt. Pisqua. -Theresa Mullens, Gill, Massachusetts

Meet the Cook: The idea for my recipe started with a food demonstration I didn't like. That version used things most people don't have on hand. So I decided to experiment, and out came Taco Tater Skins. We - my husband and I have a girl, 7, and a boy, 4 - make a meal out of these skins. But they're also great for parties as appetizers. (Have the recipe handy...you'll be asked for a copy!) -Phyllis Douglas, Fairview, Michigan

For Nancy Citro, providing her popular appetizer for get-togethers has become a necessity. She pens from Cape Coral, Florida, "Friends joke that they won't go to parties unless I bring my dip. And I've lost count of how many times I've written down the recipe for people! Nancy likes to serve her snack with extra bread for dipping.—Nancy Citro, Cape Coral, Florida

"A real crowd-pleaser" is how Christine Halandras, from Meeker, Colorado, describes her baked spinach appetizer."Plus, it's so nice to make ahead of time," she adds. "You can quickly reheat it later or even serve it cold." The recipe makes a delicious vegetable entree or side dish, too—just cut the pieces into larger squares.
