    worldmom's Note:

    This recipe came from Slow Cooking Magazine, and it is one of our family's favorites. I don't go to the bother of rolling each burrito as instructed in the recipe, but rather just stick the crock of barley mixture on the table along with tortillas, shredded lettuce and cheese, sour cream and salsa so everyone can make his/her own. It's super yummy, super easy and super filling. (I also omit the cilantro as we're a family of cilantro haters.) ***Note: the nutritional information shown with the recipe includes all the ingredients, but one serving of the barley filling alone is 145 calories. You can save lots of calories by going with light sour cream and cheese, and by choosing a lighter tortilla.

      This is an absolutely horrible meal. Use rice only.

      I decided I wanted to make this at about 6:00 at night, so I adapted it to the stove top instead of the slow cooker. I had to keep a close eye on it to avoid burning toward the end, when there wasn't a lot of liquid, but in general it was very easy. The flavor was great, and easy to adjust to my preferences.

      Absolutely loved this. I used vegetable broth to make this a vegetarian meal. It was so easy and had so much flavor. I'm not sure what type of barley I used (maybe pearled?), but mine was done in only 3 hours. For the last hour, I cooked on low with the lid halfway off to evaporate the excess liquid. Served on corn tortillas, which was great, but I can't wait to have it on a salad for tomorrow's lunch.
