Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Accompaniments: Tomatillo salsa

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    I found these less than the sum of their extravagant parts. Fine, sure. But not equal to the labor and costs they entail.

    Hard to go wrong with nachos, honestly.
