Bechamel Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2014
This is an excellent Bechamel sauce recipe. Please keep in mind that bechamel is a basic sauce meant to be customized. Want less fat, use milk and broth, want a creamier, richer sauce, use cream or half & half. It can be used for savory and for sweet. Season to taste. This sauce made a wonderful base for mac & cheese as well as, a delightful creamed soup base. The possibilities are endless.

No Bull Burritos

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
I think this is a great no nonsense recipe. Anyone who has eaten at an AUTHENTIC mexican restaurant knows that you will never eat a taco or a burrito made with packaged seasonings that contain over a dozen ingredients that most of us can't even pronounce. That said, you can doctor this up using any ingredients you would like. I added onion & garlic while browning the meat and a 1/2 tsp of cumin, salt & pepper to taste. Once you've made the basic recipe, let your imagination and your pantry be your friend. I've added as someone else suggested some whole black beans, I've used a few whole pintos & some leftover rice. Another time I added a can of green chili peppers and some chopped bell pepper while browning my beef along with the onion & garlic. Experiment with different cheeses, left over chopped chicken, etc. Thank you for a great basic recipe that allows the cook to make it their own.
