This recipe is one that comes from my aunts cookbook Simply Mexican. I love this recipe because it’s super unique. It is also super fun and easy to make. It is great for any barbecue or cookout. The grill gives it a nice smoky flavor and a different texture. It’s a great way to add some more flavor to an everyday meal.
