So Poor Girl ended up getting a nasty little case of walking pneumonia this week (instead of the “bad chest cold” I originally thought I had), so you’ll have to forgive me for being out of the kitchen for a while. Fortunately, my mom made plenty of her famous Arroz con Pavo (Turkey & Veggie Rice) this year and aside from the standard Thanksgiving leftovers and my new Turkey Chipotle Soup, I’ve been pretty much living off this great little dish.
I originally posted this recipe last year at this time, but the picture I took with my phone’s camera was sad, grainy, and pathetic, and it certainly didn’t do the dish any justice. I figured I’d take a new shot for everyone today and remind you of this great, healthy, and economical way to keep stretching those Thanksgiving leftovers. Let’s face it: there are only so many turkey sandwiches one can handle after a while, and what’s great about this meal is that it will last you forever. I believe my original post mentions that it feeds a small army, which is completely true. But the cost? This will yield about 15 cups of the finished product (!!!!!!!) and the entire recipe will cost you only $18. Depending on appetite, that translates into about 20-some odd servings, so your cost per serving comes out to a mere $0.95/serving! Now THAT is eating ridiculously well on a minuscule budget.
I’m off to take a little nap now. As my appetite and energy return, I’ll be posting some new recipes, so stay tuned! For the full Arroz con Pavo recipe post, just click here. And as always, enjoy! 🙂
