Best Breakfast Tacos
They're simple, and yet so many fail so often to allow these simple breakfast standbys to really stand out. Smooth refried beans, steamed flour tortillas, chorizo, cheese, and crunchy fried potatoes — that's it. If you want to gussy them up, whip up a batch of fresh simple salsa and guac, or add some scrambled egg. If you don't have time to make your own refried beans, get a can of refried beans and doctor them up with a diced onion, hot sauce, water, and a handful of cheese to make them even tastier. Great in the mornings with kids, or for hangovers if you're still acting like one, and a quick savory dish if you're setting out to have breakfast for dinner.

Brown Butter Pecan Pie
One of my favorite autumn delights growing up in Texas was fresh pecans. My grandmother would gather the nuts from her pecan trees and bring them on Thanksgiving unshelled to share. The family would sit around, visit cracking pecans and what we didn’t eat right from the shell, we would use for pies.For more great recipes like this one, check out our list of every Thanksgiving pie recipe, ever.

Refried Beans
It's always great to have a batch of refried beans on hand. This staple of Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine goes great as a side with grilled proteins and all the classic fixings, in a bowl as part of a taco salad, and in tacos, burritos, and quesadillas... the possibilities are as they say, endless.

Vanilice
This is a gem of a recipe. If you prefer to make your own jam for it, go right ahead, but they taste equally good with a nice quality store-bought jam.
