"Our daughter loves to help out in the kitchen, so I try to choose recipes that are easy to follow," relates Ruth Behm of Defiance, Ohio. Just six ingredients, including convenient salsa, create the zippy filling in these speedy burritos
This is one of those recipes you always come back to. A flavorful tomato sauce and mildly spiced meatballs make a hearty sandwich filling, or they can be served over pasta. I broil the meatballs first to quickly brown them. —Jean Glacken, Elkton, Maryland
"I was first served this hearty hot sandwich at a friend's home," recalls Charla Sackmann from Glidden, Iowa. "I couldn't wait to get the recipe and make it myself. The cheesy sauce is a delicious disguise for leftover turkey or chicken."
Dill adds fresh taste to the shrimp and cream cheese topping Angie Hansen spreads on bagels. "I usually prepare these open-faced sandwiches for a fast lunch," comments the Gildford, Montana cook. You can heat them quickly in the microwave or pop them under the broiler if you'd like crispy bagels.

"Served with a green salad, slices of this pizza-flavored sandwich make a terrific lunch or dinner," informs Eleanor Dunbar from Peoria, Illinois. The crispy bread is loaded with a hearty filling of Canadian bacon, pepperoni, cheese and more.
