Burritos are one of the most recognizable Mexican-style food. Burritos are found frozen in a gas station to award winning restaurants. The filling is normally rice with some form of protein, beef or beans being the most common. A wet burrito is a burrito that is covered in a chili based gravy that is similar to enchilada sauce but thicker and typically wrapped in a flour tortilla instead of corn which enchiladas are made with.

When you think of an old time diner one of the first dishes you think of is a patty melt. A patty melt is the perfect blend of a cheese burger and a grilled cheese. A patty melt is a great sandwich which puts a beef burger, caramelized onions and melted swiss cheese in between two slices of toasted rye bread. It is not a great meal if you are trying to stay low fat, but everyone needs to cheat meal every once and awhile. Aren't I right?? Check out the recipe below in post.
Chimichurri sauce is an Argentina sauce that is great for marinating and as a condiment on top of grilled meat. The chimichurri sauce is a very vibrant green color and is very similar to a pesto that uses cilantro and parsley in place of basil. With these grilled shrimp you use the chimichurri sauce for a marinate then use it as a finishing sauce that packs the shrimp with great flavor inside and out. It is perfect as a meat portion of a meal or as an appetizer. Check out the recipe below in the post.
The best complement for any cut of pork is sugar. It helps bring out the natural sweetness that is found in the pork. The combination of the sugar seasoning coating and the honey and maple syrup complement the natural sweetness of the pork chops without becoming over sweet. These honey-maple glazed pork chops have a great smokey char that gets in cased in the sweet honey-maple glaze. The addition of the mustard and vinegar help make the glaze stick to the pork chops unlike most glazes that get melted right off while on the grill. Check out the recipe below in post.
