Pantry POINTERS: Make Mine Mexican!

  • Make any vinaigrette-style salad dressing Mexican flavoured by stirring in some ready-made salsa.
  • When it comes to taco seasoning, think outside the box! These seasonings make a great rub for steaks and work well to flavour ground beef for soups, quesadilla fillings, salad toppers and more.
