This started when I was about 16 yrs old, Its 50 + yrs old. I once worked in a fast food Mexican Cafe and This was my favorite sandwich then, and still is today, but they no-longer serve this on their menu. So I have to make my own today. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Makes for a great Summer meal or Anytime you have the taste for a little Mexican flavors.. . .That's Simply Super EASY to put together.
