Dec 29, 2013 on

Come on, Ree! This isn't a "Food Network Star" recipe. I can't believe you use that rubbery cheese when there are so many other great choices out there? A pepper jack /cheddar/ queso fresco combo, added to a white sauce or some cream cheese to smooth it out, works well. Chorizo cooked out of its casing adds a little more authenticity.

Also, the tip to combine the dry ingredients ahead of...

Jeff is a Food Network natural - engaging and informative. Chuck is a tough, yet affordable, cut of beef. However, the ingredients and cooking process makes it taste like a slice of heaven. If the ingredients lists for this sandwich looked overwhelming to some, the topping, giardiniera, can be made way ahead and keeps well for several days. It's ...
