Serves 12 Gorditas



  1. Prepare Herdez™ Queso Refried Beans according to package directions.

  2. For Cabbage salad: In medium sized bowl, add cabbage, carrots, onion, lemon juice, tomatoes, oregano, and salt, jalapenos and jalapeno juice. Mix well, cover and chill 30 minutes before serving.

  3. For the Gorditas: Following instructions on corn flour package for Gorditas, add 1 ½ cups water until you form a uniform dough. If it feels dry, add a bit more water. Make small masa balls with your hand and flatten to form little patties (gorditas).  Place a generous tablespoon of refried beans in the middle and carefully fold edges over to cover the beans. Using your hands, flatten dough slightly to make it thinner and into a round shape about 3-4 inches wide.

  4. Heat oil and fry about 3 Gorditas at a time on both sides.

  5. Top each Gordita with a ¼ cup of the Cabbage Salad
