Impress your sweetheart with simple and fresh ceviche! The best part of this recipe is there is no cooking involved. Even though your madre told you, “You’ll never find an hombre unless you learn to cook”, it’s not true. This recipe will prove your mamá wrong. This ceviche is a wonderful appetizer with tortilla chips or a light meal served on tostadas.
