It may sound odd, but this Tex-Mex style dish actually hails from Japan. It’s origins are from Okinawa, specifically, where it was made popular due to the high US military population who were stationed there in the 1960’s. Today, you’ll find it at casual family restaurants and fast food spots all over Tokyo, and it couldn’t be an easier dish to create yourself at home. If rice isn’t your thing, try swapping it out for another wholesome grain like couscous or kasha. And if you don't have togarashi seasoning on hand, you can substitute crushed red pepper flakes.
