My dad's second wife used to make a dish she called mehongue (may HON gay) It contained ground beef stewed in tomatoes, with spices, black beans, garbanzo beans, and peppers, and was served over rice. There seemed to be a liberal application of cayenne, cumin, garlic powder, and salt.
She told me the name meant Junk. The dish seemed to be a Cuban version of American Chop Suey simple leftover ingredients stewed and served over a starchy base like rice or elbow macaroni and was considered by the cook to be a decidedly downmarket but irresistable dish.
When I google mehongue I dont get any results. Maybe Im spelling it wrong? If anybody else has heard of this dish and knows the right name/proper spelling, let me know.
