I literally make this recipe a couple times a month. Every time I make it, it’s a little different. I kind of do my own thing and measure by taste. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! I usually make a cilantro guacamole to top it with and if I have sour cream in the fridge, we top with that too! – Jessica
