Since I am from Iowa and now live in New Mexico, I will bring Green Chile Casserole:

Layer corn tortillas, canned or freshly roasted green chile, and shredded cheese in a casserole dish. Cover with a green salsa, such as tomatillo sauce and sprinkle a little more cheese on top. Bake until warmed through and the cheese is toasted.

Oooh, I want some Fiesta Beans!

I'll bring my latest discovery -- zucchini chocolate chip muffins.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 Tablespoon ground flax
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup shredded zucchini
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

In a bowl, combine flours, flax, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Combine the egg, oil, milk, lemon juice and vanilla; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in zucchini, chocolate chips and walnuts. Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until muffins test done.

Fiesta Beans!

I am feeling lazy so this is one of my all from cans recipes.

1 can rotel tomato's
1 can black beans
1 can of red beans
1 can of great northern beans
1 can of corn
1 package of dry taco seasoning
1 package of dry ranch dressing
1 pound of hamburger, ground turkey, TVP, Korn, or even tofu
optional: half a red or yellow bell pepper

The whole key to this recipe is to make it colorful, so use any beans you like as long as there is a variety of colors.
Brown the hamburger or meat substitute in a skillet, drain if needed. Add some water and the taco seasoning and let simmer. If you are using the bell pepper add to the skillet now. Drain the black beans and corn, rinse and pour into a large pot. Add all the other cans without draining. Once your meat or substitute is done simmering, add to pot. Pour package of ranch dressing in pot, stir well and heat on low until it is hot and the flavors are well blended.

I thought we would have a fall potluck. Everyone list the item they are bringing and then the recipe. Let's have fun with it and don't forget the desert!
