Yes, another recipe for this Cuban dish. I don't know if this is Cuban version, but it's very good and pretty. I consider this a company dish. To peel the tomatoes, dip in very hot water; they should peel easily. I got it from the Prudent Diet Cookbook. If you are making it for more than 2 people, adjust measurements.
