If cooking perfection is your thing, then these cooking tips are made for you! You might not be a professional, but with these practical tricks you’ll look and feel like a Master Chef in the kitchen. Here’s how.

Tip #1. For properly-cooked shrimp that won’t fall apart when you cut into them, one of the key cooking tips is to flip them until they turn pink – you just need to cook them a few minutes on each side. Try out this tip when making delicious Grilled Shrimp with Garlic and Chipotle with Hellmann’s® Real Mayonnaise , and see how great they turn out.

Tip #2. When making zucchini pancakes, remember to take out the eggs and the Country Crock® Original from the fridge, and let them sit at room temperature for 45 minutes. This will help give you a fluffy batter that will cook evenly and will give your pancakes great texture.

Tip #3. The trick for the best Macaroni Salad with Hellmann’s® Real Mayonnaise is, when cooking the pasta; fill a big pot ¾ of the way with water. Also, pay attention to the cooking time, so the pasta won’t overcook, this will make your macaroni pasta well cooked, with a firm consistency, that is to say ‘al dente’.

Tip #4. The secret to sautéing an onion is the temperature of the oil. In order to check when the oil is just right, place a small piece of onion in the pan, and if it sizzles, it’s ready! Follow this tip when making Ranchero-Style Beans , a tasty meal with that Latino touch from Knorr® Chicken Flavor Bouillon .

Tip #5. Finally, the last of the cooking tips for delicious meals! The next time you make Knorr Red Enchiladas , sauté the onion first, then the chile, and last, the garlic. This way you’ll avoid burning the garlic, it turns bitter. Keep in mind that garlic in hot oil cooks way quicker than the rest of the vegetables.

And that’s the whole enchilada!
