Foolproof, Ovenproof Skillets
When the temperatures drop, nothing is better than Homemade Warm and Hearty Comfort Dishes! In order to ensure your meal goes off without a hitch, make sure that your skillet is truly ovenproof. You’ll need to set the oven to 425°F, so you’ll want to double-check how much heat your skillet can withstand.
Flip over the pan — generally cast iron, stainless steel, copper, aluminum, or ceramic — and check for an oven symbol and a temperature typically varying from 350°F to 500°F. Once you’re equipped with the right pot, there’s no limit when it comes to Casseroles and Oven-Baked Rice Dishes!
Red Hot Chili Powder
Moderately spicy, chili powder will add a kick to your dish without being overwhelming. Though there is cayenne pepper, this seasoning mostly consists of oregano, onion powder, cumin and paprika. Therefore, cayenne powder should not be used as a substitute or you’ll end up with a dish that lacks flavor complexity but is 8 times hotter.
If you have all those spices in your spice rack, you can make your own chili mixture. Otherwise, taco seasoning will do in a pinch: it’s a great Ingredient Substitution to Have on Hand!
Mexican-inspired cuisine is always in season, no matter if it’s el Día de los Muertos, Cinco de Mayo, or Taco Tuesday! Whether you’re looking to make a weekday dinner or a medley of meals for a big get-together, there’s no shortage of options!
