 Question about recessive genes, and want a list of recessive genes in leo’s

ok, i am starting to get the whole genetics thing. If i am right (correct me if im wrong) the dominant gene while always be expressed, not the recessive. but if there are 2 recessive genes, the recessive will obviously be expressed. The question is, what morphs have recessive genes in leopard geckos? I have heard that the blizzard is recessive, is that true also?

Dominant genes and recessive genes can be expressed like this:
N = Normal
r = recessive trait

Genotype(genetics): Phenotype(what it actually looks like):
NN = homozygous for the normal trait
Nr = heterozygous for normal and recessive, the dominant trait masks the recessive one
rr = homozygous for recessive trait

Some traits however, are much more complex like co-dominance, incomplete dominance, and line bred or selective bred traits.
Recessive traits: Albinism, blizzards, blazing blizzards, patternless, giant, jungle, mack snow, pastel, reverse stripe/stripe, aberrant, leucistic, red eyes, hypomelanism.
Co-dom:co-dom snow, super snow
Selective:stripe, jungle, lavander, aberrant, tangerine, high yellow, hypermelanistic.
Other morphs like R.A.P.T.O.R.s start to get more complex, involving "double recessive" genes, and start lumping other traits into one gecko like hypomelanism, red eyes, and tangerine.

From what I’ve heard, Mack Snow is co-dom (Hence the reason for Mack Super Snows). So is Enigma, and Giant. Which is true?
