http://draytonarchaeology.com/about/garth-baldwin/ The concoction of corns, beans and a mixture of other veggies has been called many things. Salsa. Cowboy Caviar. Salad. Any one of those names can apply to this recipe. It’s nothing new. But this oldie is definitely a goodie. It makes for a healthy, meatless meal. And, according to my husband, it makes for an awesome lunch when served on warm flour tortillas.
Sadly, I’m a picky eater. I will not eat vegetables unless hidden in a sauce or other means. That goes for fruit too, with the exception of applesauce. It’s a texture thing for me. When people learn about my “poor eating habits” they undoubtedly wonder how I’ve made it this far in life. I ask myself that same question nearly every day. I just keep telling myself that if I wait long enough, scientists will reveal a study confirming that eating funnel cakes, Tootsie Rolls and all things sugary delicious is the secret to life’s longevity. However, while I wait, I must find other nourishment – like this chili.
While it’s not the prettiest dish for a picture, serving this Chow Mein Hot Dish always satisfies my family’s hunger. My proof that it’s a family favorite is this picture. My family had the dish half eaten by the time I could find my camera to take a photo!
