Seasoned with Southwestern zest, this lean beef roast is fork-tender and gets a little kick from salsa. "My husband, Phillip, and our two young daughters raise our own cattle and hogs on a farm just outside Freeburg, Missouri," writes Cathy Sestak. "This one of our favorite ways to eat beef. Enjoy!"
This mouthwatering southwestern recipe makes enough for two casseroles, so you can enjoy one today and freeze th other for a busy weeknight. They're super to have on hand for quick meals or to take to potlucks. —Sonya Nightingale, Burley, Idaho.
The recipe for this creamy, chili-like dish was passed down through our church years ago. It's so warm and filling that we often prepare it when we take skiing trips to Colorado. It can be served over corn chips and eaten with a fork...or kept warm in a slow cooker and served as a hearty dip at parties.

"This casserole has so much zesty Mexican flavor that my husband doesn't even realize it's a low-fat dish," says Shirley Meyer of Alden, Minnesota. "With its creamy sauce made from soup and cheeses, it tastes like a calorie-laden meal when it's not."
This recipe is simple enough for a young cook—such as my 12-year-old daughter—but it'll satisfy the heartiest appetites. And Mexican Lasagna looks as great as it tastes. This south-of-the-border-style casserole is a family favorite in our Southern home—give it a try!

We've always liked stuffed peppers, but everyone is pleasantly surprised at this mildly spicy version. For convenience, you can assemble these pretty peppers ahead of time and bake them later.
