Making for a quick and spicy snack, the Tlayuda is made up of a small, crunchy tortilla with a schmear of refried beans, lard, some sort of pork like chorizo, beef or shredded chicken, and a smidge of salsa.
- Cemita – Similar to deep-fried breaded meat, these sandwiches are made with a sesame seed-covered, brioche-like bread roll that’s filled with fried cutlets of meat and then stacked with shredded queso, avocado, chipotle, and the fragrant Mexican herb pápalo. A dish that leaves you fulfilled.
