Expert Tips

  • Want it spicier? Add a tablespoon of finely chopped hot pepper, such as jalapeño or serrano, to the sauce mixture.
  • If you don’t have an 18x13-inch rimmed baking sheet or “sheet pan,” consider investing in one. They’re large enough to accommodate a full dinner on one pan, but small enough to fit in most home ovens.
