REVIEW: 3 star recipe rating
This was hard to follow because there were no measurements. I had to just wing it and even though it turned out tasty, it would have been less frustrating to have actual measurements to use. I give it 5 stars for flavor but 3 overall.

I made these years ago, took me a while to find this recipe again w/o the apples inside. My family loves these. This is the real deal, just like at Mexican restaurants!
