This recipe was provided by my cousin Ana Elisa, in Portuguese, with the following note: "a recipe that is very quick to make and VERY good, given to me by my mother". As noted in another recipe, Ana Elisa's mother was my mother's godmother and cousin, who loved to cook, and who always had something special and delicious on the table for her family.
