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, in tacos, burritos, and quesadillas... the possibilities are as they say, endless. In the photo attached, they're being served as part of a breakfast taco with potatoes and chorizo.

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.

Empanadas
Empanadas are traced back to the northwest region of Spain, but what is fascinating about this delicious snack is that every region has their own rendition that came about centuries ago — Italy, France, Argentina, Chile, Mexico. The actual word empanada comes from the Spanish verb empañar, meaning to wrap or coat in bread using meat and cheese. In Latin America, empanadas are considered to be a very classic comfort food and the flavors, spices andvary depending on where you travel. This recipe is courtesy of Chef Anthony Lamas executive chef of Seviche.

Nashville-Style Hot Chicken
It’s fiery. It overtakes your taste buds and burns your mouth in just the right way. Nashville hot chicken allegedly born out of infidelity is nothing less than a Music City tradition — spicy, greasy, and indulgent.

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.

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.
