I don’t know if could say that this Rice with Hot Dog is a traditional Brazilian dish. But it is a common dish in our homes. Why? Maybe because this is a cheap dish or because it’s easy to make. I believe in both reasons, but I would like to add one more: it’s so yummy!
I would dare to say this is Brazilian comfort food 🙂
Oh, I just thought of another reason this is a popular dish. What child doesn’t like hot dogs? So it pleases the whole family!
