    davinandkennard's Note:

    This recipe secured my status as a great "Mexican" cook. Some explanation is needed. This is NOT a Swiss recipe and does not use Swiss cheese. Anything in Mexican cuisine that makes use of cream is often referred to as "Suiza" Try to find Crema Mexican if you can. It's available in most stores as in the queso fresco. Crema Mexican is more like creme fraiche that US heavy cream. This recipe is from The Complete Book of Mexican Kitchen by Elizabeth Lambert Ortiz.
