Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
Mexican milk beverage good for breakfast.
A nice warm breakfast drink for cold winter mornings.
My mother used to make this recipe with oats instead of the masaharina,when I was a little girl, for us kids before school on cold winter mornings, we loved it. I have also made it for my own kids when they were little. It really brings back many fond memories. Substitute approx 1 cup of quick cooking oats for the masaharina. DELICIOUS!!!
This is a very good recipe.
This is a very good recipe. I've been serving it almost daily to my new boyfriend. Please let it be know that this recipe is also a Guatemalan recipe, not just Mexican.
My husband is spanish and we enjoyed it greatly. It's nice to find recipes that are enjoyable to the whole family.
