This recipe literally takes 10 minutes
but taste like something from a coastal Mexican restaurant.

Speaking of coastal Mexican restaurants...

The 1st day of our honeymoon we ate at a coastal Mexican restaurant with an eight foot crocodile sitting at our feet waiting for scraps of food to fall.
It was insane.
I can't remember what I ordered, or if the food was good, all I can remember is the crocodile trained to clean up after us.


  1. I am going to have to try this!! Looks yummy!Where in Mexico? I used to live there! I never ate with a crocodile though!
