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. Mi mama loved my stuffing and so do my children and grandchildren. 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."
