  1. Oh yes, this sounds really good for now!! I’m in Isla Mujeres and the rain is pelting down…so unlike ANYTHIING I’ve experienced before in the region of Cancun. Still, I’m delighted to be here and with a Chadraui here in Isla, I may just find all the ingredients I need for this comfort food of the rainy season!! Thanks for this!

  2. Yumm – it sounds warming! Today it is -22c. A good day to read a book! Cheers Carol
