This is an old mexican recipe that my mom and my grandmother used to cook for me when I was a child and now I make it for my grandchildren and have made for my children. It is a simple little recipe that everyone will love. You can leave it plain with just eggs and corn tortillas or you can top it with many different things. I hope you will enjoy it.
