Juliann Esquivel


This dish is so good it is my daughter-in-laws Mayte's mother's dish. Mayda, as she is called. Her Mom, brought it to a family gathering one Sunday and it was over the top. Very delicious and satisfying. She was so sweet to share with me and now I share with all my JAP members. Enjoy
