Culinary Classic: Nachos

“Necessity is the mother of invention.”

Some of the most iconic appetizers and snacks were created out of the necessity to calm unforeseen hunger cravings when the pantry is all but depleted.

Who can forget Teressa Bellissimo who invented Buffalo (chicken) wings at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY, one night in 1964 when her teenaged son and his band of party-reveling friends showed up at the restaurant hungry.

Mrs. Bellissimo took some chicken wings that were intended for the stock pot, deep-fried them, then coated them with a mixture of hot sauce and butter. On the side, she served celery sticks and blue-cheese dressing.

The rest is history.

T-Roy Cooks: A Tale of Two Nachos

When it comes to “big game”-day spreads, the most successful are all about variety and abundance. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that every single offering is different. Rather, take a single concept and vary the theme to create multiple dishes, but with a lot less time and labor.

Our good friend Troy of YouTube channel “T-Roy Cooks” takes this point home by creating two different types of nachos to excite the palates of his guests.

Foam on the Range: Cooking with Beer

You can do a whole lot more with beer than just drink it.

In fact, Men’s Health Magazine cites a total of 31 uses for beer, none of which have anything to do with tossing one down the hatch, yet 8 of which have to do with cooking—if you count the one about scaling fish (with the bottle cap, not the brew).

Culinary DIY: Salsa

salsa-title
Salsa, which is literally translated as the Spanish word for “sauce,” can take many forms. Salsa roja uses cooked tomatoes, while salsa cruda, pico de gallo, and salsa fresca use all raw ingredients. Salsa verde calls for tomatillos and is a delightful green color. And these are just a few of the many variations.
Prepared salsas sold in jars in the United States are always cooked to lengthen their shelf life so they can be sold in grocery stores and markets.
However, once you’ve tried fresh, homemade salsa, practically no mass-produced, jarred variety can compare. Here we show you how to make a chunky pico de gallo.
