This one is from my 1972 Sunset Mexican cookbook. Everyone has their preconceptions. One which is quite common in many places of the world is that the Swiss are all dairy farmers, a la Heidi. So it's only natural for the Mexicans, who have far fewer dairies, to name this dish in honor of that far away and mystic land. Be that as it may, this is one incredible dish, a real diet buster!
