This is truly a family fave and is perfect for a busy night of rushing to soccer, swimming lessons or scouts. I put it together in the morning and pop it in the oven when we get home. —Karen Latimer, Winnipeg, Manitoba
What could be more fun for a Southwestern or a cowboy theme party than corn bread shaped like cactus? Cheddar cheese mixed in makes it even more special. Guests will want seconds.

I love cooking with green chilies because they add so much flavor to ordinary dishes. Once while making a pot of chili, I had some green chilies left over and mixed them into my biscuit dough, creating this recipe. The fresh-from-the-oven treats are a wonderful accompaniment to soup or chili.

I found this recipe in a cookbook and lightened it up by using skim milk, less oil, egg whites and reduced-fat cheese. It's moist and mildly flavored with canned chilies. —Tena Edyvean of Rapid City, South Dakota
Arkansas is called "razorback country", so this recipe seemed appropriate to represent our area! This dish is almost a meal in itself, but I serve it with mashed potatoes, fresh peas or butterbeans and cabbage slaw. I recently took it to our Senior Citizens Club and received lots of compliments and requests for the recipe.
I love to cook and have thought about submitting some of my recipes for a long time. My supportive and encouraging mom finally convinced me to stop thinking about it...and do it! I often serve this corn bread with chili.
