    Wow -I love a tasty roundup like that. I think the guava and cheese and the bacon and cheese catch my eye the most. Ha ha…I guess I’m always drawn to recipes with cheese!

    Hope you’re doing good and enjoying the summer!

    I’m firmly in the aborrajados camp (I do live in Cali, I guess I´m biased), although maduro stuffed with savory fillings can be a pretty awesome lunch. I’ve never seen buñuelos de maduro before but that sounds like a great idea!
