Gorditas de Chicharron: these are what real "gorditas" look like (not the fake Taco Bell stuff). Made from Maseca, fried or cooked on a grill, fill them up with whatever you like and make them chubby. Hence the name! My favorite is filled with carnitas at El Mercadito in East L.A. But my mom makes the best!
Mexican Stuffed Bell Peppers – stuffed with ground beef, black beans, rice, tomatoes, spiced just right with Mexican spices, topped with grated Cheddar and Mozzarella cheese. Baked in a meatless tomato sauce sprinkled with cheese! Delicious!
