Homemade Horseradish Sauce
My market only had one option of prepared horseradish. It was not the "EXTRA HOT" Chef John recommended. I was too lazy to make my own so used it anyway. Let it sit overnight in the frig and then tasted. Too mild. No kick at all. I added another 2 tbsp of horseradish and a pinch more of cayene pepper. Much better! The next day I whipped in some Best Foods Mayo to make left over roast beef sandwiches. OMG, so good!

Chili Rellenos Casserole
I think it is better with fresh home roasted Poblano chili's. Only takes 5 minutes under the broiler turning Chili's with tongs till they blacken. Then throw them in a paper bag to steam. Easy to peel. I used 6 for a 8x8 pan. The enchilada sauce is a must. I used a Lawry's Enchilada spice package with a small 8 oz can of Hunts tomato sauce. Was very mild. Victoria in the glass jar has a bit more of a kick. Used 3 eggs. DEFINITELY separate out the yolks and whip the whites till they are fluffy. Then blend the yolks, flour & milk together and fold it into the whites. Makes a big difference. I only had 2% milk so I reduced the amount a little. Can see how the evaporated would make the casserole richer but it was still good without. Add sliced black olives & chopped green onions on top. Was really delicious. Wonderful that you don't have all those calories in there from frying.

Ham and Cheese Bowties
Very good! I'll use this method of making a roux, adding the milk and then stirring in the cheese to make the sauce from now on for Mac & Cheese. I found the ratio of ingredients perfect. I didn't have Colby so I used a shredded cheese blend of mild cheddar and jack. Still mild. I will try all white cheddar next time. We like a little zing so I added 1 cup of finely diced sweet onion & 2 tsp cayenne pepper. Used Dijon instead of dry.
