Expert Tips

Die-hard cheeseburger fans can add pickle slices to their tacos.

To keep stove cleanup to a minimum, purchase a splatter screen. The round mesh screen sits on top of the skillet, minimizing the splatters you typically get when cooking ground beef. Look for a splatter screen in the housewares department of discount stores.
