    Rick B(2)'s Note:

    The person who originated this recipe was from Guatemala. How he got the name of "Nelson" is anyones guess. Fluent in the English language....but like a lot of good cooks, he did not cook from a written recipe, just from memory! After watching him cook this and translatin "a pinch of this", "a dash of that" and "some of those" into usuable measurements, I managed to create his dish on my own. The favorite measurement he kept saying for this recipe was "two fingers beer!", "two fingers beer!" and then would start to laugh! Two (2) fingers beer = 1/3 of a cup!!!
