food friday- TOSTILOCOS

The first time I had this was on my honeymoon. My husband served an L.D.S. church mission in Mexico so he was the one who introduced me to this lovely bag of food. We went back to Mexico after 3 years of being there and it was a snack we had to get. Who knows when we'll be able to eat this again. Yes, we can find a recipe online but i'm sorry, i don't think it will ever be the same. I've been diligently searching for the recipe and I found some blogs that 1.) made a healthier version (no thank-you) or 2.) sites with the recipe but missing ingredients. Either way, here's one I found off of epicurious (with some modification on my part) but if you can find one that's as authentic as it could be... Pa-pa-pa-please share. :)

Have a fantastic friday!!!! As for my husband and myself.... unpacking boxes and setting up our new place. We slept like babies last night in our O W N bed.  Pretty darn fantastic start to our weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
