En la preparación hay ingredientes que no se mencionan en la lista y la redacción de la preparación es muy pobre, le faltan muchas comas y puntos y es difícil entender las instrucciones. No es lo mismo decir: “vamos a comer abuela” que “vamos a comer, abuela”. Una coma puede salvar una vida. Que lástima que no podré preparar este platillo.
