Here's an easy way to make a zesty, satisfying side dish, perfect for a festive Labor Day celebration. We had this dish frequently in the summer growing up. The joy of growing up Mexican!”

This was OK. My Mexican hubby gave it a 60% compared to his Moms. She has passed away and I can't ask her for the other 40%:( I think I did something wrong, since I added the buttermilk and it separated, was that supposed to happen? HHMM. I'm sorry Muy Bueno
