Meet the Cook: My "policy" in the kitchen is to try to fix something totally new at least once a week. This recipe came out beautifully on the first try! Ever since, in between experiments, I've made it often. I usually fix Meaty Spanish Rice for family meals - but it's also great for doubling if unexpected company comes and the cupboards are all nearly bare! My husband and I own a small engine repair service. Someday soon, we plan to retire to the farm 70 miles west of here that we also operate. We have three grown children and five grandchildren - and I spend as much time with those little ones as I can! -Margaret Shauers, Great Bend, Kansas

"This was good, but I made some changes when I made it. We do not like hot spicey food. I eliminated the chili powder, the hot sauce, the cayenne pepper. I substituted olive oil for butter. I used the turkey. We don't eat beef. It is chicken, turkey and fish and plenty of veggies. Thanks."

"I'm not a big fan of ground turkey, but I sometimes find it for super cheap on clearance. I always make this when I have turkey."
