    Polar Bear's Note:

    This is a family favorite- from generation to generation. It is a great dish to impress guests PLUS super comfort food !! I use a combination of several kinds of meat for the broth (calf's foot, beef briskets, rabbit, bones, etc.) Pig's tongue can be substituted, but adjust measurements. Original recipe by Nora Daza. You cant miss with this great tasting dish!

      tried it...very good! I also have a lengua recipe but a lot different. It's been with the family for a century. It was developed by my great grandmother. I'll submit it as soon as I have time. More power. Cheers!
