Mulitas are my new favorite food truck food. They are popular in Tijuana and Los Angeles. I would describe it as a cross between a crunchy taco and a quesadilla.
What makes this different? Mulitas have two tortillas that are fried on both sides for extra crunchiness. It is then created with meat and cheese like a quesadilla that has been upped a notch on the awesome scale.
Top this amazing entree with your favorite toppings such as sour cream, salsa, guac, cotija etc. Or, make your own incredible sauce by combining your favorite fresh ingredients in a blender or food processor.
How To Make Mulitas Step-By-Step
5. Assemble your ingredients. Spread meat and diced onion onto a baking sheet and cook under a broiler.
6. In a large frying pan, cast iron works great here, add oil and heat over medium heat. Place the first tortillas in the pan. I could fit four small corn tortillas at a time. Cook until golden brown on one side.
7. Flip the tortillas and add a layer of cheese and a layer of meat followed by another layer of cheese. Place a tortilla on each one. Flip and cook until the tortillas are golden brown.
8. Serve with your favorite garnishes such as sour cream.
