Onion-Yogurt Sauce


Onion-Yogurt Sauce

A few months ago I posted a recipe for Super Garlicky Yogurt Sauce.  Since then, I’ve used the sauce almost every day… on potatoes, noodles and veggies.

But any food, even a yummy one, gets boring if it’s eaten too often. Because of that, I’ve done a little experimenting, and  I’ve come up with a delicious and simple variation. I call it Onion-Yogurt Sauce.

So far, I’ve only used the Onion-Yogurt Sauce as a topping for burritos, both plain and mixed with salsa. Both ways were great.

Next, I’m looking forward to trying a dollop as a garnish for my bean soup. I’m guessing the result will be wonderful.

Spicy Cheesy Fries, Three Ways


Spicy Cheesy Fries, Three Ways

A couple of weeks ago, I found a re­cipe for Sal­sa Cheesy Fries over at Lazy Chef Re­cipes. Since then, I’ve cooked that dish sev­eral times, after making a coup­le of changes to both ingred­ients and inst­ruc­tions. I also came up with a few new top­pings. The main recipe plus the two varia­tions below are the end re­sult.


1  1/2  pounds matchstick fries

1 cup medium strength salsa

1  cup shredded cheese

salt, to taste

non-stick spray or oil


Do not preheat oven. Using non-stick spray or oil, prepare a baking pan.

Place the match­stick fries into the baking pan.  Sprinkle with salt.

Top with sal­sa and then cheese.

Bake for 20 minutes, stir fries well to dist­ri­bute sal­sa and cheese, and then bake for an­other 10-15 minutes.

Add additional salt if needed.

Note: When writ­ing this rec­ipe, I in­clud­ed the quant­ity of cheese and sal­sa that I en­joy. After making this dish the first time, feel free to experi­ment till you find the fry to cheese to salsa pro­por­tions that suit your own taste.

Variation 1: Substitute 2/3 of a cup of medium taco sauce for the salsa. If using hot taco sauce, add only 1/2 cup.

Variation 2: Substitute spicy tomato sauce/pasta sauce for the salsa.

Description: I’ve been obsessed with making my own Rock Candy since I was a small child.  Our class went on a field trip to a large indoor farmer’s market (Lexington Market) and rock candy was one of the few things we were allowed to purchase. Yum!
