Harissa, a spicy sauce popular in northern Africa, gives these potatoes a bit of a punch. I found Harissa with the ethnic items at Whole Foods, but you can also get it at African specialty markets or make your own with Recipe #10251.
I'm addicted to Tex Mex, and it's slowly but surely clogging my arteries. I'm told these are called "wet burritos," although I have yet to find a Tex Mex restaurant that calls them that. Anyhow, here's my lower in fat version of a dish I simply can't live without. You can use pre-prepared beans and rice or give it your own flair by making them from scratch. Add or omit ingredients as you like to create your own perfect burrito!
The cheese sauce should be made a day before, but other than that, this is a quick & easy recipe that tastes a lot like Kraft Macaroni. I like it because it can be made with no food coloring or preservatives, and I can add other cheeses for a different flavor. Since I can't eat the "real stuff," this makes a good substitute.
Easy truffles taste just like you bought them at a gourmet candy store! In addition to what I've listed, you can roll them in powdered sugar, cocoa powder, other confections to make them a truly unique candy!
This is a little lighter that traditional Chateaubriand in that I use light margarine instead of butter. I also use a more traditional sauce than the creamy béarnaise a lot more modern recipes call for, although I substitute cognac for the white wine used in traditional Sauce Chateaubriand.
So quick to make, and the brown sugar adds a little extra sweetness to the crust. Good workout for your arms too!
FYI: One reviewer said to use "soft wheat" instead of "hard wheat"...I have only ever used the flour that is labeled "whole wheat flour" or "white whole wheat flour," no mention of hard or soft, so I'm not sure what that's about. It seems none of my other reviewers have had that problem.
