Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote)

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
For those that have settled for parmesan chesse as a replacement to Cojita cheese, what a shame. This recipe AS IS does not need tweaking, modifying or any overhaul whatsoever. I tried the parmesan cheese method because I did not have all the ingredients, and at the time it deserved a very good rating, until I got my lazy butt to the store and got Coitja cheese. I finally made the real deal and the parmesan cheese method was instantly downgraded to OK. Make this corn as is and I guarantee you will be the gourmet griller you sought out to be. Cotija cheese all the way!

Easy Homemade Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
This is not an entry into some chili cook off. I would review it entirely differently if it were. With some minor tweaks, this is a tasty, cheap, fast and easy meal without a doubt. Like others have reviewed, it's definitely a base recipe. I doubled the recipe. It lacked a kick and in my opinion was just on the verge of being bland. I made the following change and it made a hit at the table. Replace the half of the tomato sauce with a mexican tomato canned sauce called Salsa de Chile Fresco. Salsa de Chile Fresco is a tomato sauce with the ingredients : fresh chiles, tomatoes, onions, cilantro and garlic. This gives it just enough kick and flavor to get the taste buds working without killing your guests or your kids. Of course if you already have these ingredients, just add them to your sauce, but sticking to the theme of EASY is the goal here. I also used 3 cans of kidney beans as 2 cans was not enough to offset 2lbs of ground beef. Don't forget I doubled the recipe. Serve with tortilla chips. Objective met!
