Discovered this out of an old 17 magazine when I was a teen, I started making this for Mexican night when I was a newlywed. My husband I would have friends over and I would always have to make sure I would send left overs home with them. Now when I make then I make a triple batch, freeze then and when we see friends and family they love the food gift.
