One user posted, “Steak, beans, and mushrooms. Just cook a steak in a skillet, and while it is resting, add some butter to the pan, crisp up some rosemary, add some garlic and mixed mushrooms, and saute them for a few minutes. Next, add a drained can of cannellini beans. Stir well, move to a plate, and top with sliced steak. 15 minutes tops, very luxurious and hearty.”

2. Burritos

“Burritos. I pretty much already eat one daily,” posted one user.

Another user added, “Burritos are the best food.” 

Another commenter asked, “How do you make yours? I love burritos myself, but I typically make them only one way, and I'm starting to get tired of them—Ortega taco seasoning with ground beef. First, heat the tortilla in the microwave. Add beef, shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, diced onions, lettuce, and sliced black olives, Ortega taco sauce, and sour cream. It's never bad, but I'm getting bored.”

One Redditor responded, “This guy needs sliced avocado and limes, STAT!”

3. Pizza

One Redditor shared, “Pizza.”

Amother added, “This is it. Pizza can be made with so many sauces, toppings, and cheeses. Possibilities are abundant.” 

“I absolutely love Mod Pizza because it's one price, and I can put 1 or 15 different toppings on my pizza,” a third user replied.

4. Beans and Rice

One Reddit user shared, “Beans and rice.”

Another user also added, “This is how literally every Brazilian life. Source: I am Brazilian, and when I moved abroad, I started missing it like crazy. Now I have to have it at least twice a week (married to a Moldovan, so we mix it with other foods too).”

One user asked the OG poster, “How do you like to prepare it?” If you don't mind me asking? Some of my specific questions are spices, what beans, or brown [rice] vs. jasmine.” 

Another user answered, “Traditionally, we would use white basmati rice or similar. We fry garlic and onions, then fry the rice for a few minutes and boil it with water and salt. Beans are similar. Cook in the pressure pan, then fry garlic and onions. Add salt and cumin, with optional bay leaves and black pepper. Some people also add bacon, sausages, or lard. Most traditional are pinto or black beans (depending on each state you are from).

5. Egg Fried Rice

One Redditor posted, “Egg fried rice. You can make variations of it like spicy egg fried rice,… egg fried rice with veggies.”

Another user proudly said, “[I] lived on this during Covid! Cheap and good!!”

“Same here! It's my brunch menu since the pandemic,” one commenter added. 

6. Samosas

One Redditor posted, “Samosas with tamarind chutney. Dang, I could eat samosas every day.”

Another user commented, “This is like my son. He basically drinks the tamarind chutney 🙃.”

A third user exclaimed, “National brand!!”

7. Hummus Bi Tahini

One user shared, “A chickpea can with lime juice, olive oil, and spices in the blender. Spread on toasted bread.”

“Isn't that how hummus is made?” another user asked. 

Another user confirms, “It pretty much is. Hummus usually has tahini, but I don't think it's a requirement.”

One commenter said, “The Arabic name for the dish is ‘hummus bi tahini,' meaning ‘garbanzo beans with tahini.' It's absolutely a requirement if you're making hummus as traditionally defined, but I think you're right when it comes to descriptive English vocabulary.”
