      Excellent and tastes just like what we've had in Costa Rica. I used Melinda's hot sauce, since that is what is used in Costa Rica.

      I'd made this some time back. I did not garnish with bacon, instead, did that with cilantro. Also, I did not use Tobasco and Worcestershire sauces. I remember garnishing with cilantro and thin strips of green bell pepper. The dish was amazing, both, presentation and taste wise. I served it with low-fat yogurt and everyone had a grand time:)

      I did not use bacon and found this to be extremely bland. I can't imagine that the bacon would add enough flavor to make this worth making again.
