Back to the vintage cookbook!

This recipe’s not so much scary as kind of funny.  The recipe is for Beef Mexicana.  Check and see if you can find what makes this Mexican in the ingredient list…

1 lb hamburg

2 8-oz cans tomato sauce

1 box frozen corn niblets (or a can)

1/2 c chopped onion

salt and pepper to taste

Ummm, the corn?  I guess that must be it.  Not even a smidge of cumin.  And I imagine that this was probably what was the international food highlight here.  I’m sure it’s fine, there’s no cream-of-anything soup in it, but it’s kind of funny.  The submitter says to serve it with rice and corn bread.  They also note an optional green pepper or chili pepper could be added.  Viva Mexicana!
