Yes, I know what you're thinking.....
Dog Barf? What kind of name is that?!
Well, at least those of you that were brave enough to click on this post.
This recipe happens to come from an old family friend named Doug.
Legend has it that one day, when he was a kid, his mother was cooking dinner and he looked into the pan and said, "That looks like dog barf!"
Eventually, he gave the recipe to my mom and she kept the name.
My family and their friends have an odd sense of humor.
His last name is blanked out, because some years later he became the mayor of a small town in California.
Yes kids, you're looking at a celebrity's recipe.
Well, kind of ;)
Some of you may remember this recipe from my old blog. My apologies if you tried to make it and the rice never seemed to cook as fast as the recipe said it would.
Mom "forgot" to tell me and my brother that "rice" meant Minute Rice and not regular long grain rice.
Of course, we didn't figure this out until about 2 years ago when she was making it and we noticed the box of rice she was using.
I think she likes to do things like that, even though she says it's an innocent mistake.
Whatever you say.
Anyway, it really is as easy as it looks and I swear it tastes better than it sounds. Even picky kids will eat it.
Well, except my daughter Annie, that doesn't like ground beef.
Just brown the meat and throw in the rest of the ingredients. I add a little salt and pepper to mine.
Stir it up.
Let it simmer for 30 minutes.
And the finished product should look like this:
I guess you can see why a little kid would come up with the name.
Lastly, wrap a scoop of it up in a warm tortilla and serve.
You can add all kinds of things to it, like cheese, sour cream, hot sauce, etc., but I like mine plain most of the time.
Sorry about the bite taken out, but we were already eating when I remembered to take a picture.
I promise I'll get better at this.
Hey, at least this time I took an after picture.
Don't judge me!
