This is really a versatile recipe, and economical, too. It can be used so many ways... as a filling for burritos, a topping for nachos, or as a side dish. I've also served it in bowls with nachos for scooping. I like to add some cheese no matter how I serve it. I had never cooked with barley before I started making this, but found it easy and tasty- kind of like rice. As prepared here it makes a lot, but you could easily half the recipe.
