Recipe by Manami
My friends' Vicky and Vilma were having a party for some friends who came from Cuba but they lived in Mexico for about 10 years. So we scouted about for recipes for their "new taste buds" because Cuban food is bland. These nachos were liked by all and not too many of us noticed the heat! I know there are many of you out there that like things even hotter; go ahead doctor it up! Great for Super Bowl Sunday!
