What do you do when you have hot dogs, leftover chili and … no hot dog buns? Channel iCarly, the popular tween TV show on Nickelodeon and improvise. (For those unfamiliar with the show, Big Brother Spencer has cooked spaghetti tacos on numerous occasion. I've made these, and they are surprisingly good.)
Sub in corn tortillas and you have downright tasty chili dog tacos for a couple of hungry kids.
Needless to say, they were a hit. And I have shells left in the box for another night.
What's your strangest edible concoction that still manages to be a crowd-pleaser? Tell me in the comments section. I might want to give it a try.
When the holiday season starts to explode, my eating habits tend to implode. Homemade cookies at work, chocolate goodies at home, candy, retirement cake, etc. I find myself longing for something wholesome and satisfying - at least for dinner. This recipe is my mom's. It is from my babysitter, Gladys, when we lived in Little Rock, Ark. My sister and I still love this dish, and I have brought it to potlucks, taken it to sick friend's families, and shared it with friends and relatives. It's simple and uses ingredients you probably don't have to run to the store for. What dishes do you go to for comfort during chaos?
1 pound ground beef
1 large onion, chopped

1/2 cup rice, uncooked
1 teaspoon chili powder
