This a dish my aunt would make for us a few years ago. My aunt Juanita called them Gorditas but they are like little tostadas. I found out that different regions in Mexico they call their food what they want. :confused:

We start with a chuck roast seasoned with Emirls southwest seasoning.

Smoked with orange wood and treated it like if I was doing a PSB.

When I taught it got to 160 it went on a bed of onions and beer.

Total cook time around 6 hours. It was done when I was able to shred easily.

Then you fry little tortillas and dip them in enchilada sauce and set them to the side. Fry what ever amount you want.

Then fry them again. No need to dip in the enchilada sauce again.

Plated with cabbage and queso cotija. It must have this Valentina sauce. Otherwise it doesn't taste the same. Tapatio is fine also.

11:37 at night and I'm wondering where I can find the ingredients (Valentina) to duplicate your aunt's dish. Looks terrific!.

Another killer Tonybel dish to copy! Did you fry the tortillas all the way until crispy/crunchy and then a quick dip in the enchilada sauce? Is lard ok? Thanks guys!

Great technique on the chuck, I can see a riff on this being my new pot roast when we finally get past the dog days of summer!

Tony and Maribel, I'm thinking you need to put these recipes in a book and sell it.

It's 7 am and I am hungry!

I did a similar cook (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?p=2590249) recently but used beef broth instead of beer. How much of the beer taste remains after cooking?

She half way crisp the tortilla then dip in enchilada sauce. Key them sit until you finish frying up the batch your making. Then finish the tortilla to your desired crispy level. Lard would be perfect.
