Praise The Lord and Pass the Alka-Seltzer

It's amazing we survived this sort of cuisine when we were kids; but it sure raised a great generation, cholesterol be damned. In the irreverent spirit of James Lileks' Gallery of Regrettable Food, here is Family Indigestion - more recipes featuring semi-edible substances we'd be hard-pressed to call 'food'! My favorite section is the Trailer Trash Iron Chef party concept...I have a few recipes I'd love to compete with, like this one I call the...

Beanie Weenie Spamburrito!On each tortilla, spread one-fourth of the pork and beans, two links sausage, and some SPAM pieces. Then, lay on some Velveeta slices, or cheddar cheese if you're feeling upper-crusty. Fold up the tortilla so none of the insides are leaking out, and microwave for two minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the meat is heated through.

Yes, it's edible. And actually quite good, with an ice-cold Blue Ribbon or Hamm's to wash it down, and you're not repressing as many migrant tomato pickers as if you went to Taco Bell(TM). Heck, there isn't a vegetable within hollerin' distance here.

If you'd like to check out more of our kitchen-tested recipes (none of which are like this one, I promise), be sure to check out My God, It's Full of Squirrels!
