The social network that celebrates Latin food
One of my fondest food memories when I return home to L.A. is visiting my favorite restaurant, "La Taquiza," near Downtown. It has become a tradition for my oldest sister Cristela and me to spend the morning shopping in Downtown. But no matter how tired we are, we always look forward to lunch at "La Taquiza." Among all of their authentic Mexican foods, my favorite has always been the "Mulitas". It's two thick, homemade corn tortillas stuffed with your choice of savory fillings, fresh guacamole, and melted cheese! And if that were not enough, take a walk over to the salsa bar and choose from a dozen or more tasty salsas and garnishes. My favorite is the carne asada mulita served with rice and beans. This was my attempt to recreate those special times I spent with my sister Cristela and the "mulita" that I love so much. Mulita in English means "little donkey" and the only reason I could imagine they named it that, is because it is stuffed, like a donkey's saddle bags. Worth a trip for sure!
Yields 4 mulitas
