Review This Recipe
love this recepit
way too sweet
I did the recipe exactly as shown but, it was WAYYYYY too sweet. Felt like I was eating extra rich chocolate candy. I had to dillute it with regular milk to lighten it up and take away from all the sweetness. It could either use more water or loose the condensed milk. But, once I dilluted it, it was great. Great flavor and everything. I'll definetly make this again but with a few changes. :)
This is a great mix that reminds me of Mexico! For those who can't find it in their local stores, try www.salsanachos.com
