I was sitting in a cabin in middle-of-nowhere Minnesota the first time I tried a chili recipe I actually liked. The secret ingredient that made the difference for me was baked beans—a shock, considering I thought baked beans on their own were gross. But to this day, I remember how sweet and smoky the chili tasted.
I never have been more anxious about a Test Kitchen recipe than this one. I’m pretty good at baking. But I am terrible (TERRIBLE!) at decorating things, in part because I lack the skill for it and in part because I lack the patience. I’m just being honest.
When I make food for a party, I usually opt for a dessert or a dip—something that’s quick for me and easy for my friends to eat. I’ve prepared my fair share of homemade queso and cake-mix cookies, so when I found this recipe for bacon cheeseburger garbage bread, I was excited about trying something different.
When it’s summertime, I like my meals to be a little tropical. I know you might not want to turn on your oven in July, but I like this recipe because it’s low-effort. There aren’t many ingredients, you don’t have to chop anything, and you mostly can forget about it once you stick it in the oven.
Happy Cinco de Mayo month! Let’s make enchiladas. I have cooked enchiladas once before (the salsa verde variety, not the red-sauce kind), but I opted for this recipe because it also incorporates guacamole, which is on the short list of my favorite foods.
