Latin Recipe of the Week: Delicioso Holiday Stuffing
Latin Recipe of the Week: Delicioso Holiday Stuffing
By Latina Staff | 11/30/2012 - 16:53

Developed by Vangie Soza of Muy Bueno Cookbook: "When I started making stuffing I was just 13 years old. I began with helping my older sisters by doing all the chopping. Over the years I changed some of the ingredients and finally came up with this recipe. Having made this recipe for years, it is engrained in my memory.

I usually double this recipe to give some away to neighbors or anyone else who doesn’t cook at Thanksgiving; I usually include all the other fixings and a homemade pumpkin pie. They are always so grateful; the smiles on their faces warm my heart."
