“This is a really yummy snack. It looks like a thick tortilla but has a sweet subtle coconut flavor. I got the recipe from my Chamorro mother-in-law. They're great with a little bit of butter! I usually make them at the beginning of the week and make one each day to share with the family.”
6-8 Tatizas
