El Torito: Mexican Fare in Rohnert Park

January 21, 2015 5:05 pm

Folks come to this hip and casual Rohnert Park Tex-Mex restaurant to relax and indulge in platefuls of nachos smothered in cheese, jalapenos, green onions and guacamole. Speaking of guacamole, the kind made here features fresh avocados and serrano chiles.

El Torito also makes well-regarded fajitas and enchiladas, covering the meat and vegetables in a signature Chipotle-garlic and chile marinade. You can also kick up your boots and enjoy one of their housemade specialty margaritas, like the supercharged Cadillac with Ultra-Premium 1800 Select Silver Tequila and a side shot of Cointreau Noir.

Visit El Torito's website to find out more about this Rohnert Park restuarant.

How to Make Your Own Potato Chips

January 14, 2015 5:04 pm

It’s no secret that kids love to snack on potato chips, but they certainly aren’t the healthiest food in the world. Making potato chips at home cuts down on a great deal of saturated fat and sodium, and it’s much easier than you might think. Here are three delicious homemade potato chip recipes that your kids (and you!) will love.

Sweet Potato Chips [preschoolers.about.com]
Add a bit of sweet flavor to the usual potato chips by using nutritious sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes. This recipe takes only three ingredients and 25 minutes to make, and you can season it however you prefer.

Oven-fried Potato Chips [simplyrecipes.com]
If your little ones love the crispy, fried flavor of store-bought potato chips, this recipe will help you to mimic that in a healthier manner. Use them as a side dish or pack them in their lunch boxes for a delicious, homemade surprise.

Oven Baked Potato Chips with Sour Cream and Onion Dip [pbs.org]
The classic combination of chips and dip gets a nutritious (and still kid-friendly) makeover in this simple recipe. By using reduced fat sour cream in the onion dip you get all of the flavor with half of the fat and calories.
