  1. My name is David Perez, Meschica/Aztec now residing in Minnesota. This is my original recipe that I submitted on the Native Tech website in 1999 approximately. It was voted among the top five recipes. I am glad to see that many of you enjoy it. Of course Aztecs, did not have hot dogs, refrigerators, paydays and many other modern amenities. I was having a little fun dude, OKAY! Laugh a little will ya? Jeez!
  2. Hey!!! I have fixed something close to this for my kids over the years, and yes, it does help get through in lean days waiting for payday. Depends on whats in the frig as to what the final result will be,the idea is the same and always well received. Disregard any negative comments you may receive, some people just don't have a sence of hummor. Thanks for sharning. Lee
  3. Made this for DH and he loved it! His ancestors could have been 'Aztec', too. ;) I, too, remember the very loooong days between paydays. Thanks for the fun recipe, I mean, Chef! lol
  4. The Aztec's did not have "HOTDOGS" nor did they have refrigerators, and I am quite sure that "payday" was never a week off!
