A motherload of sodium, a dash (or ten) of unknown ingredients we can't even pronounce, and questionable meat, and you've got some of fast food's most popular (and deadly) menu items. Unfortunately, even though I know eating these things won't be the best decisions I make, I still crave them. I've cut fast food out of my diet, but that doesn't mean I am not tempted (quite frequently at that). 

I need a way to satisfy my cravings without breaking my resolution, so I found a ton of copycat fast food recipes that will save me. I get to control the ingredients, so that in itself is already a huge selling point. Happy cooking!

Oh no. With great power comes great responsibility . . . and I'm not sure I'm ready for the responsibility that comes with knowing how to make the Taco Bell quesadilla sauce. I would drown every single thing I eat in it. Burger? Sauced. Sandwich? Sauced. Cake? Sauced (was there really any doubt?). Yogurt? Sauced, baby. No food item would be safe.

Please, for your safety and the safety of your loved ones, be responsible with your saucing.
