Forget grilled cheese: Try these chocolate sandwiches

UPDATED: Tue., July 21, 2020

In the Sandwich Hall of Fame, the grilled cheese is prominently displayed. It's the culinary equivalent of a one-name cultural phenomenon such as Rihanna or Bono; the lunchtime staple requires no "sandwich" descriptor for people to know exactly what it is.

All you need to make sazón at home is some common kitchen spices

Grocery store shelves are lined with so many seasoning blends, from taco seasoning packets to Cajun spice mixes and Italian herb combinations. The commercially made products are convenient, but they also are – in most cases – exceedingly easy to re-create at home.

Saucy, smothered tofu with peppers, onions will have you dreaming of Mexican coast

UPDATED: Sat., July 18, 2020

Mexican cuisine, says Eddie Garza, doesn’t have to be all about cheese, meat and lard.
