I'm a little slow today. I just switched to Sanka. So...have a heart?

What to eat when you're poor.

This was tasty.

Dump an eyeful of olive oil into a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Sliver half a medium onion. Toss it in, and cook it just until it starts getting golden.

Throw in a handful of raisins.


Throw in the last 1/3 of a bag off bulk chorizo you have, and smash it with the back of a spatula.

Dash in a couple dashes of Angostura bitters and a few shakes of hot paprika.


Dash in some dried cilantro, cumin, chili powder and Jamaican Pickapeppa sauce.

Fry until it gets dark.

Splash in cider vinegar.

Curse when you remember that cider vinegar reacts in a cast iron skillet.

Pour in some chicken broth to deglaze, and boil it off.

Toss in two cups of leftover cooked brown rice, and raise the heat to high.

Fry, fry, fry! Stir, flip and fold!

When it starts smelling done (a little burnt) pull it off the heat, and enjoy!
