    My son-in-law loved this when it was served as an appetizer at a local Mexican restaurant. Since there are only two ingredients, it wasn't hard to figure out how to make it at home. Fast and easy and only four or five steps. (One more if you count looking for the jar opener.) (If the jalapenos in your store are in a different-sized jar, don't worry about it. Amounts aren't critical in this.)

    Recipe #342637

    This started as a recipe from a Mexican cookbook, similar to many others on RecipeZaar. When my daughter was learning to cook, she decided that since zucchini seldom yield the exact amount called for in recipes, it would be easier to use the zucchini on hand and substitute Bisquick for the dry ingredients. She was right. One day I had some leftover corn on the cob, thought "Why not?," cut if from the cob and threw it in. My son tasted one and suggested adding the jalapeno. Amounts aren't critical, and you can substitute frozen or canned corn and canned chilis.

    Recipe #314963

    My sister got this recipe from a friend in an RV park. It's easy, fast to put together and tastes good. "Ranch" is the brand name of the beans, but they can be hard to find unless you're in Texas or WalMart, so other ranch-style beans can be substituted.

    Recipe #208492

    Real home-made junk food. Can't remember where I found this 30+ years ago, but it's been a favorite with my family ever since - including the picky kid and my meat-and-potatoes husband. Easy, quick, fairly inexpensive. No. of servings depends on who shows up at the table; it will feed six or eight smaller kids, but only two or three teenaged boys. This probably isn't the original, since I haven't looked at the recipe since the first time I made it - it's that simple. And easy to vary - you can use different kinds of cheese, and I've thrown in diced chiles. My daughter, the former picky eater, sometimes uses chili with beans to make it a one-dish meal. I made this today, halving it, along with Stephanie Pharris' Bacon-wrapped Jalapeno Poppers (#105670) - a menu to avoid at my age, unless you enjoy being up all night with heartburn. But it sure tasted good! (And if you're really into digestive discomfort, you could add some chopped jalapenos to the dish. I think I'll pass on that one.)

    Recipe #110225

    We had this dish at a supper club in Wisconsin 10 or 15 years ago, and it took me months to come up with the recipe. Actually, it took about three bites - the months were the time I spent waiting for veal to be on sale. Fortunately, with the cheese on top, you can't eat too much of it, so it doesn't take a lot of the veal. Measurements are approximate. If you're cooking for one, you can cook enough spaghetti for one serving and refrigerate half the veal mixture for reheating the next day.

    Recipe #66096

    Obviously, her cupboard is NOT bare, but if you do find a bone, the dog can have it because you won't need it for this. It can be reminiscent of Italian or Mexican food, if you're in that mood, or not, if you're not. It will serve at least four, probably a lot more, depending on what you throw in. And most of the preparation is opening cans, while the pasta is cooking. As a bonus, if you find a really good combination, you can name it and share it.

    Recipe #53346

    This is a variation of Cousin Frank's Family Heirloom Polish Sausage that I came up with when my daughter saw an article about tree-trimming parties in BH & G and insisted we had to have one. (Don't ask ME why a four-year-old was looking at BH & G!) It's been a family favorite ever since. My husband really liked it with pasta, but when the kids were all here, I had to hide some in order to have any leftovers.

    Recipe #52148

    My cousin's husband-to-be, who was very proud of his Polish heritage, used to bicker with one or our uncles. One day the uncle said that Frank probably didn't even know how to cook Polish sausage. Frank responded that he made the best Polish sausage in the world! As time went by and the wedding got closer, the whole family started nagging him to make his famous sausage for the wedding reception. (Anyone from a large family will understand this with no problem.) This is what he brought, but he refused to give anyone the recipe for years. His mother-in-law finally wormed it out of him, along with the fact the he didn't have a clue how to cook much of anything, let alone Polish sausage. He devised this out of desperation the day before the wedding, and most of us have been eating it ever since. Good for appetizers or main dish.
