gorditas de papas con chorizo

Gorditas de papas con chorizo is a popular Mexican dish made from homemade thick corn tortillas that are sliced down the middle and stuffed with a potato and chorizo filling.

Let’s get started!

Ingredients Needed

Gorditas are either pan-cooked or fried depending which region they’re from in Mexico

*Quick Tip!*

- Mexican chorizo - olive oil - onion - masa harina - water - salt - queso fresco - cilantro lime crema

Boil potatoes until tender soft, then set aside. Sauté onions until translucent, then add chorizo and cook for 8 minutes. 


Add potatoes and cook everything for 5 more minutes. Make the dough by mixing masa harina, water, and salt. Form the dough into balls and flatten.


Place the flattened dough in a hot skillet and cook for about 2 minutes, flipping every 15 to 30 seconds. Let gorditas cool, then cut a slit down the edge of the tortilla to create a pocket.


Fill the gorditas with papas con chorizo filling, then top with the cilantro lime crema and a sprinkle of queso fresco!
