Season 3, Ep. 310
We reveal the test kitchen’s secrets to two Southwestern staples: Authentic Beef Enchiladas and Easy Chicken Tacos. Then, Jack Bishop challenges host Chris Kimball to a tasting of Baked Beans, and Chris shares the test kitchen’s top freezer tricks.
The road to authentic taco flavor in just 30 minutes (or less) took some astonishing turns.
Traditional recipes require simmering steak for hours. Bad convenience versions opt to use hamburger and canned sauce. We stick with the steak but use a few shortcuts to cut the cooking time.
A sweet discovery helped us see which baked beans are best.
