    Very good. The homemade gorditas are essential and they were fairly easy to make. I followed the recipe except I forgot the lime juice in the pork carnitas - definitely would have been better with it. I served with CL southwestern confetti salad. I will definitely make again.

    Delicious. On first reading it sounded undersized for the 6 servings recommended, but the gordita base is more filling than I expected. Flavor and texture are great, I served with green rice on the side & it was a tasty and satisfying dinner. Will definitely make this again.

    I don't fry gorditas, I cook them over an electric griddle and it comes out just as good and cuts even more fat from the dish.

    We LOVED these. My husband remarked on their fresh, authentic taste. It was helpful to prepare the meat a day ahead, and I added cumin and bay leaves while cooking. Lovely and easy tortillas - something I'd never before attempted to make from scratch. Served with Mexican sodas and a tiny piece of Three Milk Cake for dessert. Delicious!

    The carnitas are a regular meal in our house. We love the texture and flavor. We don't bother with the gorditas and just serve with corn tortillas and guacamole.
