    Hibiscus and Mint Popsicle Recipe

    A couple of months ago I try The Good Pop Hibiscus popsicles at HEB  as soon as I tried them, I knew I had to re create that Hibiscus and Mint Popsicle recipe.

The hard thing for me was to find the right meat, because I wasn’t sure what type of beef I should use, the beef cuts in USA are really different from Latin America. After some research I found out I…
