Sometimes unsuspecting food critics sit down to an unknown dish with skepticism brewing and bubbling like a volcano underneath the calm exterior. Criticisms are forming before the first nibble is taken. Well, if you know some such food pedant, abort their food snobbery with this little dandy of a recipe. One taste will silence the simmering skeptic like Alka-seltzer to a stomach that just finished a bowl of two-day-old chili with extra garlic and hot sauce. Really, it is that good.
If kids are around, you might want to banish them to the basement while you make it, or it might just get quaffed by the starving hoards before you even put the finishing touches on it. Rice pudding alone can’t hold a candle to this fantastico recipe. Try it and you’ll be a believer thereafter.
