I’ve talked about what an amazing cook my grandma is but I haven’t told you that her story is even more incredible. Back in the 60’s she immigrated from Mexico as a single mother with three small children and $20 to her name. Her story is one of true grit, determination, strength and faith. She opened up Lupita’s La Jolla not just because she expressed love through food, but also because she had to provide for her kids and had no option to fail. She would start her days before sunrise to gather and prep ingredients and work endless hours to make ends meet. There’s no one I love or respect more. So, I know you’ll love this recipe as much as I do! Here’s a video on exactly how my Nana and I make these.
