“Created by my Mom during COVID-19 quarantine! Extremely simple but don’t underestimate it, this dish is packed with flavor! The hot/cold ingredient combination is delightful, but baking the tomatoes instead of using raw is great too. Add salsa, grated cheese, or meat (bacon is ideal) for different twists or crunchy lettuce for a nice texture.”
