If you are cooking for someone on a low sodium diet, use this recipe instead of taco seasoning. This recipe is the equivelant to one package of taco seasoning (or 3 tablespoons.) Adjust the strength of any ingredient to your taste.

This traditional Mexican sauce is spicy and goes well with Chef Meg's Cocoa-Crusted Pork Tenderloin.

I love this recipe! It can be used as a sauce for grilled meats, a dressing for salads or steamed vegetables, or as a marinade for tofu or other lean proteins. You will always find it in my refrigerator.

Seriously Better than Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce
(no ratings)

I learned this recipe while living in Italy. It is so divine, you will stop going out for alfredo dishes to cook for everyone you know. It's even low enough in calories to fit into a meal without blowing it. I could not find an alfredo recipe that I could successfully make for 5 tries. Even this is recipe that I couldn't mess up. Sometimes I wish I never got to turn out right. Ha

This recipe makes 1 serving.. multiply as you need. It's so easy to make, you'll be finished faster than a trip to Fazoli's would take.
