  • Very Good
    My husband told me this was really tasty! He is 100% Spanish and only likes his moms spanish food (she is from Puerto Rico) so it must have been good. Also my 5 year old loved it too. I gave 4 stars because I had to make minor adjustments but not so much to affect the recipe. Thanks for posting this - 6/9/10
